Agromin Recycles Over 385,000 Tons of Organic Material in 2011

Agromin, the organics recovery company for more than 50 communities in Ventura, Santa Barbara, Los Angeles and Orange counties, recycled 386,680 tons of organic material from residents and businesses in 2011, up from 379,792 in 2010.

 
PRLog - Feb. 29, 2012 - OXNARD, CALIF.--Agromin, the organics recovery company for more than 50 communities in Ventura, Santa Barbara, Los Angeles and Orange counties, recycled 386,680 tons of organic material from residents and businesses in 2011, up from 379,792 in 2010. The increase comes despite the continued sluggish economy and reduction in new construction, which affect the amount of organic materials generated by households and businesses.

   "It's Agromin's mission to divert green waste from landfills and transform it into quality compost and mulch for growers, landscapers and consumers," says Bill Camarillo, Agromin CEO. "The conversion process is completely natural. We use similar methods as homeowners who maintain compost piles in their backyards."

   Residents who put their organic waste in their green recycling bin are doing their part to help the planet. "Organic material that ends up in landfills produces greenhouse gas emissions that have been proven to heat up the atmosphere," says Camarillo. "We're finding that more and more residents and businesses are making a conscious effort to do their part to reduce the amount of these emissions."

   Agromin's potting mix and Compost 100 are listed by the non-profit Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) so they can be used to produce certified organic products in accordance to the USDA National Organic Program standards.

   Agromin soil products are sold in bulk and in bags at locations in Ventura, Santa Barbara, Orange and Los Angeles counties. For a list of locations, go to www.agromin.com.
