Recology Organics

Recology Organics creates premium compost and landscape products that help farms and gardens throughout California and Oregon live a healthy, happy, more productive life. But you might say, there’s something else we’re creating that’s just as important: A World Without Waste.

We do it by converting people’s everyday yard trimmings and food scraps into earth-friendly, nutrient-rich soil amendments. So instead of ending up in landfills, these diverse natural resources can serve their best and highest use, feeding the earth from which they once came.


       Grocery Division & AB1826


The Recology Grocery Division provides large and small grocers throughout California with organics collection, hauling, staff trainings, and ongoing consulting to ensure compliance with regulatory standards, like the recent state mandate, AB 1826.  This measure requires businesses and multi-family dwellings that generate 8-cubic yards or more of organic materials per week to arrange for organic recycling services.

The goal of the Recology Grocery Division is to help our grocers minimize food waste and instead compost unsold organic products in order to increase landfill diversion. Recology creates tailored programs that fit the needs of each store and management team.

Is your store looking to comply with AB 1826?  Contact the Recology Grocery Division at (800) 500-1630 or email the division manager, Larry Vaccaro.

Our Farms


There are many farmers who use the products manufactured by Recology Organics.  Such growers include, but are not limited to apple orchards, vineyards, and flower farms. Recology works with both traditional and organic farmers, as well as home and garden landscapers across California and Oregon, to find the best soil solutions for their growing needs.

Over the years, Recology has provided consultation services to farmers who have found that the compost produced by Recology offers a viable alternative to using synthetic fertilizers.  As a result, our compost and custom blended products, help improve soil health and grow healthy crops.

Why Use Compost?

Benefits of Compost

Over time, soils can lose their nutrients due to continuous harvesting. Amending them with nutrient-rich Recology compost returns valuable minerals to depleted soils, restoring their natural health. Besides benefiting the soil and the crops that grow from it, compost also reduces the need for chemical fertilizers, and conserves water and energy for the farmers and landscapers who use it.
  • Elevates soil health
  • Provides nutrients and minerals in soil
  • Improves soil tilth and structure
  • Enhances biological activity in soil
  • Increases water infiltration and storage
  • Promotes humus in soil


Our Products


Recology works closely with farmers, landscapers and gardeners from California, Oregon and Washington to find the best soil solutions to meet their needs.

Recology Premium Compost

Recology Premium CompostWith its reputation for boosting biodiversity everywhere it goes, it’s little wonder our Recology Premium Compost* is a favorite of vineyard managers and organic farmers.

It all starts with a rich, deliciously diverse feedstock made from reclaimed food scraps and yard trimmings. We then carefully monitor it for CO2, temperature, and moisture to develop a highly aerobic method of composting. The end result is a hard-working, earth-friendly amendment that adds important biological and microbial life while also increasing your soil’s organic or humus content.

Since Recology Premium Compost is intentionally engineered to work in a wide range of agricultural applications, it has become what some people might call a “crowd pleaser.” All we know is, given how it consistently helps improve crop health and yields, farms and gardens alike sure must enjoy being fed its buffet of nutrients and benefits.

Biotreatment Soil Mix
Biotreatment soil is an engineered blend of Recology Premium Compost and fine aggregate materials. This solid is meant to perform water quality treatment, bioretention, and obtain a desired flow control to remove stormwater and run-off pollutants.  This product provides high enough infiltration rate to meet desired water draw-down, an infiltration rate that isn’t too high to optimize pollutant and chemical removal, and vigorous plant growth.  Meets all specifications for the BASMAA specification guidelines. Available at Recology Blossom Valley Organics (Modesto, CA).
