Recology Organics – McMinnville processes 25,000 tons of yard trimmings and food scraps annually using an open windrow composting system. Our team completes routine nutrient, metal, and pathogen analysis to ensure a high quality and consistent product that meets the needs of our customers.

We also recycle 5,000 tons of wood each year by grinding it into chips which is used by local lumber mills to produce energy.

Our McMinnville facility also has a large selection of retail products including compost, bark, rock, soil blends and stones.
