This Rockland County Cocomposting Facility recycles bio-solids from the wastewater treatment plants in Rockland County. The bio-solids are mixed with clean wood waste and then composted. The finished product is an excellent soil amendment for use on golf courses, flower gardens and landscaping projects.
The Facility is a state-of-the-art in-vessel agitated bin composting plant which processes clean brush, wood waste, bio-solids (sludge) and other organic residues in the production of an exceptional quality compost. The Facility is operated by WeCare Organics under contract to the Authority. It is located adjacent to the Authority's Materials Recovery Facility and Transfer Station in Hillburn, NY.
