Oregon Dairy Organics/Compost Facility
Oregon Dairy Oraganic’s is an innovative composting facility that takes in excess manure from local farms and diverts material from local landfills, turning them into useful, high quality compost for home gardeners, landscapers, park and athletic field managers, and organic farmers. By composting manure from local farms, food waste from local schools and restaurants, and leaves and yard waste from Manheim Township, Oregon Dairy Organics is turning trash into treasure while preventing polluted runoff from reaching Lancaster County’s streams and rivers.
By creating a high-quality compost from manure and other waste material, Oregon Dairy Organics is helping the region meet looming local and Chesapeake Bay-related pollution reduction mandates. The compost improves the soil health without chemical fertilizers.
