McGill recycles organic wastes
to make premium compost products
At our facilities, we process source-separated, non-hazardous organic materials from all kinds of sources — municipal, industrial, commercial and agribusiness sources. From biosolids to food waste, this feedstock variety results in high-performance compost products packed with macro and micro nutrients.
We can also set up temporary facilities on customer sites for bioremediation of soil and water, on-farm disease outbreak and storm or disaster clean-up.
