The Loop

The Loop

We’re excited about the work that we do. We divert supposed "waste" that would otherwise be mixed in with trash and shipped to landfills and transform it into clean, nutrient-rich products.

The best part is that when communities buy and use Cedar Grove products, everyone contributes to completing a local recycling loop and supporting a sustainable, local economy. This translates to cleaner water, improved soil, harnessed energy and more fresh air. All good things if you ask us.

Did you know?

With cities working under mandates to reduce the waste entering landfills by as much as 70%, composting is the practical, earth friendly and cost effective way to meet those goals.


Waste Reduction

Waste is a nationwide issue. Organic decay in landfills releases methane that warms the earth’s atmosphere. Landfills are overflowing, and the old model of just "throwing it away" cannot be sustained.

At Cedar Grove, we’re proud to be a part of the solution. Composting is a fundamentally aerobic process that does not produce any methane. We offer an ecological alternative to landfilling organic waste that eliminates methane production, and has a substantial impact on greenhouse gas reduction. We’re leading the way with real results.


Renewable Products & Energy

Cedar Grove compost is everywhere you look—in yards, corporate campuses, schools, cites, even on the sides of our freeways. We’re proud to produce a range of sustainable and renewable products for homeowners, landscapers, developers, engineers, architects and large-scale municipal and transportation projects.


Product Line

Our line of compost-based products is developed entirely from organic waste materials—clean yard trimmings, food scraps and wood waste—collected from surrounding communities.

Soil Health

We’ve been composting organic waste for more than three decades, and we’re still amazed by all the obvious and hidden environmental benefits it provides. When done correctly, organic "waste" can be composted and returned to the earth as a nonchemical fertilizer with no methane by-product. At Cedar Grove we help organic waste come full circle, and bring vital nutrients back to the soil.

"When apple cores, stale bread and last week’s leftovers go to landfills, they do not return the nutrients they pulled from the soil while growing. What is more, when sealed in landfills without oxygen, organic materials release methane, a potent heat-trapping gas, as they decompose. If composted, however, the food can be broken down and returned to the earth as a nonchemical, nutritious soil amendment with no methane by-product."
