What is UAJA ComposT?


UAJA ComposT is a mixture of ground local hardwoods - and clean municipal wastewater biosolids. The resulting high quality compost product is rich in organic matter and plant nutrients, resembling a finely ground mulch (particles less than 5/8"), and is excellent for amending depleted soils, enriching planting mixes and enhancing the growth of turf, ornamental plant species and horticultural crops.

Our facility optimizes and accelerates the process of composting which occurs at a much slower pace in nature. The process we use also generates enough heat to essentially pasteurize the product. Residual weed, fruit, and vegetable seeds, and micro-organisms do not survive the process.

The organic, slow-release nature of the nutrients in UAJA ComposT makes them less susceptible to loss through leaching than conventional chemical fertilizers. In addition, UAJA ComposT possesses an array of physical, chemical, and biological properties, which are difficult to find in any other product. Aside from being an economical and uniform source of organic matter, UAJA ComposT also:

UAJA ComposT has earned the Pennsylvania Governor’s Award for Environmental Excellence in Innovative Technology, and has been hailed by professionals in the landscape industry as well as by homeowners as one of the highest quality compost products available in this area.
