What Happens to All the Recycled Septic and Grease Waste?

You already know Wind River Environmental can make life easier by taking care of your septic and grease waste, but what do we do with all of it after we haul it away? Does it end up in a landfill? Of course not! Virtually all of the recycled septic and grease waste we collect is turned back into something useful. Depending on the location and type of recycled waste, we generate electricity or high-quality fertilizer.

Kline’s Services and Clean Electricity

Our affiliate in Pennsylvania, Kline’s Services, uses a methane digester to turn septic waste into electricity. In methane digestion, special microorganisms eat the recycled waste and their digestion produces biogas, which we use in special generators that produce clean electricity. This process offers many environmental benefits: it prevents methane – a potent greenhouse gas – from entering the atmosphere, it generates cleaner and safer electricity than most power plants, and it eliminates the waste’s offensive odor.

EarthFarms Organics and Fertilizer

We also work with EarthFarms Organics in North Carolina to turn grease waste into high-quality organic fertilizer. There, the recycled waste undergoes a long process to remove its impurities and turn it into some of the richest organic fertilizer available.

Simply throwing all the waste we collect into a landfill would be… well, wasteful. By recycling all our waste, we keep thousands of pounds of greenhouse gases out of the atmosphere each year and we create huge amounts of clean electricity and excellent fertilizer to power our economy! We’re passionate about using technology to help the environment, dedicated to being the best in the waste management business, and eager for the next developments that can help us in that mission.
