McGill’s first composting facility
The McGill Regional Composting Facility at Delway (McGill-Delway) was opened in 1991 in Sampson County, North Carolina, the first McGill operation in the U.S. It serves the coastal Carolina region from Greenville through Wilmington and south to Myrtle Beach.
In 2015, the plant was officially renamed the James H. McGill Memorial Composting Facility in honor of one of its founders, the late Jim McGill.
Situated at the heart of one of the highest poultry and swine production regions in the country, the site was home to an outdoor turkey range before acquisition by McGill. Since then, it has undergone many upgrades, evolving from an outdoor, aerated static pile facility operating in an open shed to today’s semi-enclosed plant that features McGill’s proprietary floor system, computerized process monitoring and control, concrete walls in the primary processing areas and paneled, steel structure overhead.
This facility utilizes indoor, banked-bay processing; curing is outdoors and aerated. No windrow turners are used at McGill facilities.
