Lewiston Auburn Pollution Control Authority

Biosolids Direct to the Land

The Lewiston-Auburn Pollution Control Authority is well known for their commitment to 100% recycling of biosolids generated at the plant. They operate their own compost facility and work with us to complete direct land application of class B biosolids in season. Our experience and knowledge in the field has positioned us as their trusted partner, and every year we work together to juggle site availability, plant production schedules and the unpredictable weather to move as much to the field during the season as we can. Our strong relationships with the field owners, and our project manager's commitment to being on the phone with the plant every day at 6:30 am sharp to check the day's schedule is testament to our core value of providing excellent service.

Augusta, Camden, and the Kennebec Sanitary Treatment District (KSTD) were the first customers at the Hawk Ridge Compost Facility when we commenced operations in 1990.  Almost twenty-five years later we're still providing responsible environmental recycling solutions for these communities' biosolids, and have processed tens of thousands of tons of material over the years on their behalf.  What's most impressive is their commitment to being "green" before it was mainstream; we're grateful they've chosen us to be their partner for nearly a quarter of a century.

Organic byproduct solutions for industrial generators

We specialize in servicing the recycling needs of large, industrial generators of homogeneous organic waste streams and pre-consumer food wastes. We have experience with the collection and responsible management of onsite pre-treatment/wastewater treatment residuals, such as DAF liquids and sludges, and processing by-products generated onsite.  Whether you are currently disposing of your residuals at a landfill, incinerator or wastewater plant, you may find value in our diversion programs.  Our staff can audit your facility, identifying organic materials suitable for recycling and develop a customized proposal for your full service needs.

We specialize in composting and/or land applying large homogeneous organic residuals and pre-consumer food by-products from manufacturing facilities, institutions, and the like.  Anaerobic digestion is a technology we are implementing as part of the AGreen project.  Regardless of your size and location, we'd love to speak with you and explore ways to get your resources back in the ecosystem. 

Managing byproducts so you can focus on making power

Power Plants create a variety of residual by-products every day. Management of these residuals can not detract from the facility's primary objective of creating power.

We will remove and properly manage wood ash, coal ash, or other biomass residuals, as we have done for over 20 power generation plants in the Northeast. We are committed to sustainability and always actively pursue the highest and best use of all residuals.
