What happens to my organic materials (food scraps and yard trim) once they are collected?

All organic materials are transported to the Prince George’s County Organics Composting Facility (OCF) for processing. Materials are placed in a large pile where they decompose and are transformed into a rich soil amendment, marketed and sold in bulk as Leafgro GOLD®.
