New Compost Product....Coming Soon....

Deschutes Recycling is excited to annouce a new compost product called ReGrow.

ReGrow is produced locally from a combination of yard trimmings and food waste material in Central Oregon. All of our compost is independently tested by a US Composting Council approved lab to ensure quality and reliability.

ReGrow compost will have all the great nutrients that BioFine and SoilBuilder contain but in addition it will contain higher nitrogen content that comes from the food waste. This will be great for our Central Oregon soils which are naturally poor in quality and lack organic matter, which can be the source of many plant problems.

ReGrow will be available in the spring of 2012 at Deschutes Recycling, located at Knott Landfill, in Bend. Be sure to try some for your garden. Deschutes Recycling offers self haul and delivery service, including Saturdays . For more information, call 541.388.1910.

School Tours

Deschutes Recycling offers school tours of the Recycling Center and the Organics operation. Kids can learn what types of materials can be recycled and where they go once someone drops it off for recycling. Find out what the number one contaminant in recycling is.

Learn how food waste scraps develop into ReGrow compost. The compost provides Central Oregon soils with the nutrients needed to help with a nourished garden and lawn.
