The truth is that composting can be a simple low maintenance process working 24/7 for you turning waste into profit. Composting is nothing more than the decomposition of organics and carbon into what we have come to know as topsoil. All businesses big and small can take advantage of the process I call “ Kitchen Sink Composting ”.

How to Make Kitchen Sink Compost

Simply mix organic waste and carbon into dirt and sand from jobsites, add some water and let mother nature begin her magical work. Time needed to make compost can vary depending upon the temperature and season. In ideal conditions compost can be ready in 3 months or can take up to one year. There is little or no waste to compost. When you decide the compost is ready you can screen out the overs from the fines and then reuse them in your next pile of compost.
