Green waste composting

SJB Recycling provides green waste composting services for various local authorities and also commercial customers.

Along with our sister company, Yorwaste, we operate a large number of composting facilities across our operating area.

These facilities meet appropriate regulations for undertaking open-windrow composting. We accept grass cuttings, leaves, weeds and hedge trimmings collected from household waste recycling centres, kerbside collections and commercial collections.

We collect green waste from various commercial and public sector sources and transfer it to our nearest facility.

Here,  we mechanically shred and form it into an open windrow on a concrete pad. As a result this allows us to control air and moisture during the main stages of compost production.

At the end of the process we produce a high quality soil conditioner that is accredited, at some sites, to the British Standards Institution (BSI) PAS100 standard. This compost, known as Yorganics, is available to buy in bulk or through local stockists.
