Composting and Organics
There is no other company like ours when it comes to recycling or reusing items. With large-scale on-site composting facilities, we are able to find ways to give new life to discarded materials through our composting operations.
By reducing and reusing waste products, TDS is refusing to let our environment go to waste.
Our company is one of the few compost and soil producers in Texas that go through the rigorous testing process of receiving STA (Seal of Testing Assurance) Certification, a product testing program from the United States Composting Council (USCC).
As an STA Certified provider, our products are regularly sampled and tested for their chemical, physical and biological components as well as for safety and environmental protection. We are always testing for pathogens and metals and analyzing feedstocks to verify the organic makeup.
With our STA Certification, you can trust you’re getting a superior organic product that is designed for maximum benefit for your lawn and garden.
Uses of Compost
In addition to keeping material out of the landfill, compost is an excellent resource for making communities sustainable.
Compost is typically used as a soil amendment or a component in potting mixes to improve soil tilth and add nutrients where lawns and gardens need them most.
Compost improves soil health, which creates healthier growing plants. By using compost on lawns and landscapes, communities reduce waste, cut down on emissions and improve the health of the green space while minimizing the potential for soil erosion.
TDS sells its compost, soils, and mulches via its landscaping solutions brands. Our products are lab tested and carry the United States Composting Council’s Seal of Testing Assurance (STA).
According to the EPA, up to 40 percent of all items in municipal solid waste landfills are organic materials, such as food waste, yard trimmings, and brush – all items that can easily be reused or recycled in compost.
We believe that large-scale on-site composting is critical to diverting waste from the landfill. It creates minimal environmental footprints, reduces the amount of waste being buried in the landfill, and reuses unwanted items back into the community for a beneficial use.
Our company operates several composting operations in Texas, and with decades of experience, stands uniquely qualified to process and compost organic materials.
