New Composting Facility!

2023 was a big year for Highway Fuel. We are happy to announce that we have completed phase one of our new Composting Facility.

The lengthy process of permits, engineering, and construction has resulted in a cutting-edge facility that recycles local yard debris waste into a Premium Compost product.

Construction is taking place in two phases. Phase 1 took place this past summer. Phase 2 is scheduled for the summer of 2024.

We began composting this past Fall. We are excited to announce that our first couple batches of compost are full of microbial life, ready for use in your next landscaping project!

We inspect all our feedstock, follow all of our recipes, and record all temperature and moisture readings to make sure that our compost is kept aerobic (with air) throughout the entire process, as anaerobic conditions (without air) will create poor quality compost. Curing and screening result in a premium quality product that is ready to become an important part of many of our soil blends.
Highway Fuel’s new Premium Compost officially meets the requirements of the US Composting Council’s (USCC) Seal of Testing Assurance (STA) Program. The STA program requires compost manufacturers to be permitted and follow all required regulations. The compost must be tested regularly by a certified laboratory and the results must pass EPA standards for pathogens and metals to remain in the program.
