Reno-Tahoe businesses send a LOT of perfectly compostable stuff to landfills. In some cases, up to 35% of solid waste is organic material–everything from restaurant food scraps to yard trimmings–which could be recycled through composting.

We’re here to help your business, institution or organization benefit by doing just that.

Full Circle’s green waste diversion can help your business cut costs, appeal to consumers, gain competitive advantages against rivals and, ultimately, capitalize off of “going green.”

Does My Business Produce Green Waste? Probably!

The rule of our large-scale green thumb is this: if stuff is made out of something that used to be alive, we can probably take it and transform it into rich, ultra-productive compost.

For many businesses, that’s a lot of stuff. Such as …

Food Scraps

  • Leftovers and spoiled food
  • Bread, grains and pasta
  • Coffee grounds with paper filter
  • Tea and tea bags
  • Dairy, eggshells and eggs
  • Fruit (pits and shells too) & Veggies
  • Meat (including bones)
  • Seafood (including shellfish)

Food Soiled Paper

  • Coffee filters
  • Greasy pizza boxes
  • Paper products: cups and plates, ice cream containers, bags, napkins, tissues and towels, take-out boxes and containers
  • Waxy paper milk and juice cartons

Plants

  • Branches and brush
  • Flowers and floral trimmings
  • Leaves, grasses and weeds
  • Tree trimmings

Other

  • Cotton balls and cotton swabs
  • Animal products

Sound like a lot to sift through? Not for us! We’ve been doing it every day for over 20 years!

From grass, to custom compost, to landscape and turf growth! UNR goes green with Full Circle!

Full Circle Soils & Compost and the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR) have worked together to create a “truly green campus” from start to finish. A recent article in NEVADA Today outlines this super sustainable recycling, composting, and all-natural campus fertilization “super team” that pushes UNR to new heights of GREEN GREATNESS! The below quote from the “truly green campus” article outlines the plan:

Grass clippings are collected for shipment to Full Circle Soils & Compost, a Minden-area company that uses the clippings as one of the ingredients in its line of nutrient-rich soils and nutritional additives.  

The University, in turn, purchases composted soils and specialized organic products from Full Circle for use in its landscape beds and on its lawns.  

The program diverts large amounts of green waste out of the region’s landfills, said Marty Sillito, assistant director for Grounds Services in the University’s Department of Facilities Maintenance Services. ”

Now that is a “full circle” recycling solution. UNR is not only recycling organic items like grass and landscape materials but completing the loop by actually using the products made from their own organic materials back on the campus. Even better, the results are RIDICULOUS! Continue reading…
