Compost system in Ojai for 120 horses. Capacity: 50 cubic yards per week.
Composting of horse manure turns a waste product into a valuable soil amendment. The composting process stabilizes nutrients so they are released slowly and are more available to plants. Composting has benefits for the watershed, helping to reduce nutrient runoff and eutrophication of streams and rivers.
McCormick Environmental works with O2 Compost to assist horse owners in selecting the most appropriate composting system. Aerated Static Pile composting technology minimizes labor, odors, and flies.
