The McGill Regional Composting Facility at Merry Oaks (McGill-Merry Oaks), opened in 2002, has a primary service area that includes the greater Raleigh metro area including the Carolina Piedmont and south-central Virginia. The former timber tract is located in Chatham County, about 30 minutes south of Raleigh. It was the first fully-enclosed McGill operation constructed in the U.S. and the first with biofiltration as an integrated system.
McGill-Merry Oaks is also home to the company’s corporate office due to its proximity to the Raleigh-Durham International Airport and ability to easily facilitate air and ground travel for both site visitors and our own team.
About McGill-Merry Oaks
Originally constructed to accommodate aerated, open bay (banked) composting, this facility was extensively retrofitted a few years ago for encapsulated processing to improve odor management and process efficiency and to add indoor, aerated curing. The result is the ability to process more material in the same space while ensuring consistent product quality.
