ag bag composting
AG BAG COMPOSTING
  • STAFF DISCOVERS AG BAG COMPOSTING SYSTEM (1999)
  • INFORMATION REQUESTED FROM AG BAG
  • FIELD VISIT TO NORCAL/VACAVILLE FOOD/YARDWASTE COMPOSTING FACILITY
compared operating costs
COMPARED OPERATING COSTS
  • WINDROW COMPOSTING
    • HIGHER LABOR COSTS
    • FREQUENT TURNING OF ROWS
    • FREQUENT WATERING IN WARM WEATHER
    • ROWS CAN BECOME SATURATED
    • ODORS CAN BE OFFENSIVE
    • GREATER SPACE REQUIREMENTS
    • RESIDUAL WATER MUST BE TREATED AND COLLECTED
    • MUST REACH 131o F FOR 15 DAYS REQUIRING CONSTANT MONITORING
compared operating costs1
COMPARED OPERATING COSTS
  • AG BAG COMPOSTING
    • LESS LABOR COSTS (TURNING & WATERING)
    • PATHOGEN REDUCTION PERIOD IS LESS (3 DAYS AT 131o F)
    • ODORS ARE LESS SIGNIFICANT
    • BETTER UTILIZATION OF SPACE
    • BAGGING MACHINE COST $110,000
    • BAGS COST $1300 EACH (USED ONCE)
