Organics Management

Reusing organic waste to produce renewable products

Cornerstone assists solid waste and agricultural waste managers transition to effective resource management, incorporating alternative organics management to generate renewable products. Whether considering incorporating composting, or anaerobic digestion or upgrading current systems, Cornerstone professionals complement site staff to guide and effect this change. Organics management includes collection, processing, treatment and re-use of organic material such as green waste, food waste (pre & post consumer), biosolids, farm and dairy waste, forestry materials, MRF residue and as well as other materials.  Having served the solid waste industry for decades – permitting and designing waste handling facilities and biogas management systems – many of Cornerstone’s traditional solid waste-related core skills align perfectly with the needs of organics management projects.
