CEP grinds only clean yard waste (leaves, limbs, etc.) for compost. No painted, pressure-treated or creosote wood is used.
After grinding, the material is laid out in windrows and water is added.
As the compost continues to decompose, the windrows are kept moist and turned weekly to keep the process going. The internal temperature of the windrows rises to over 131 degrees, killing off weed seeds and other undesirable matter.
After approximately 3 months in windrows, the material is screened through a machine known as a trammel screen. The trammel screen separates small particles of yard waste from large particles. With openings only 5/8ths of an inch in the screen, only very small particles are used for compost.
After the compost has stabilized and matured, it is ready to sell. The larger particles are sold as mulch or used in other landfill operations. CoastalGrow has gained wide acceptance by landscapers and gardeners in the Carteret, Craven and Pamlico County area.
