Recycling organic wastes on an industrial scale
Customers of McGill composting services are public and private entities that generate waste in high volumes.
We only transport in tractor-trailer rigs and roll-off trucks. But some companies using McGill composting services are haulers serving homes and businesses. They provide route collection of food waste, pallets, waxed cardboard and other source-separated organics, then transport to McGill.
McGill’s industrial composting services deliver cost-effective convenience for professional waste, utility and environmental managers. Our primary business includes services related to recycling organic residuals and by-products:
- Commercial composting on an industrial scale with cost-effective processing in state-of-the-art, year-round facilities. We offer dependable service to intake customers and quality soil amendments to professional markets. We can handle compostable plastics, too.
- Mobile dewatering for tanks, ponds and lagoons using gravity-fed dewatering systems. Our technology is simple, reliable and cost-effective in removing 99% of suspended solids.
- Hauling services using the McGill fleet and a dependable stable of contract haulers. This includes reliable 365/24/7 transportation for intake and extended hours for volume compost deliveries.
- Premium compost products in high volumes for professional markets. We can meet specs for large jobs year-round with STA-certified compost and blended products. (Link takes you to our compost products website.)
McGill’s commercial composting technologies produce high-quality compost
The self-generated, high temperatures attained during the McGill composting process are computer controlled to ensure pathogen kill and weed seed destruction. Our technology produces a product which meets or exceeds EPA 503 requirements for designation as a Class A Exceptional Quality compost, suitable for unrestricted end use.
Our SoilBuilder compost, the base ingredient in all McGill compost products, is certified under the U.S. Composting Council’s Seal of Testing Assurance Program. We also manufacture compost products for conventional agriculture, erosion control and turfgrass management.

McGill composting services are just the beginning
McGill professional services go beyond organics recycling and compost sales. They a full spectrum of services related to aerated static pile composting.
Disaster recovery/on-site bioremediation
Treatment plant failure. On-farm disease outbreak. Storm debris clean-up. All need the fast, secure, efficient capabilities of McGill’s aerated static pile composting technologies. We offer experience and expertise to design and implement a rapid, effective clean-up strategy:
- Transport wastes to one of our facilities
- Set-up a temporary McGill clean-up operation at ground zero or a nearby site. Meet all EPA PFRP/VAR requirements for final use of the resulting compost on site or simply dry and reduce volume before transporting to a McGill facility for PFRP/VAR composting.
Composting facility design, construction
McGill industrial-scale composting facilities provide cost-effective solutions for public- and private-sector owners. McGill offers technology licensing and package plants for both public and private owners. Our pre-engineered, expandable designs readily adapt to your changing needs.
In addition to technology licensing and package plants, we will also consider building and financing a McGill-owned facility on your site. Viability for such collaborations depends on —
- Availability of source-separated compostables
- Local tipping fees
(When you contact us, please include an estimate of annual volumes by waste type and corresponding tipping fees in your locale.)
McGill operations can be stand-alone composting facilities or add-ons to existing waste management operations:
- Expand an existing yard waste facility to accommodate food waste composting
- Add another revenue stream to anaerobic digestion facilities by converting low-value digestate into high-value compost
- Abandon expensive mechanical and thermal sludge dryers for the “free” heat of biological drying with or without product manufacture as a process goal
All licenses include manuals and training programs for your managers and employees.
Our 25-plus years of hands-on composting facility operations experience make us uniquely qualified to add value and efficiency to your planned or existing composting operation.
We offer a complete range of consulting and management services related to–
- Anaerobic digestion and composting
- Collection systems and strategies for biodegradable materials
- Design and operation of biological treatment systems/facilities to reduce volume and replace sludge dryers
- Troubleshooting for existing composting operations using aerated systems
- Sales and marketing for compost products manufactured at facilities not owned by McGill
