We love leaves so you don’t have to. Got loads of wood, brush and yard waste to dispose of? Our facilities accept your yard waste and convert it into natural landscaping and fertilizing products.
Looking for food waste disposal? Send it to us! Make sure the food waste is mixed with yard waste.
We blend top quality soil mixes engineered to meet your specifications. We have years of experience in the Central Valley. Our custom blends of compost plus the minerals needed for your fields provides great savings: first, application costs go down because you only have to spread a blended product once (instead of one pass with compost, then a second pass with minerals); second, by combining trips you reduce soil compaction.
We deliver to your jobsite, field, or home. Minimum quantities apply.
Grow well! See our products.
Led by Jed Phelps, our team in Lathrop is committed to providing you with the highest quality services and products.
We proudly process the organic waste for the City of Manteca.

Q: What are the benefits of compost?
A: Composting is the natural decomposition of organic material into a dark, crumbly humus-rich soil amendment known as compost. It’s nature’s way of recycling.
Compost benefits the community in many ways because it:
- Adds nutrients into the soil
- Improves soil structure, texture and aeration
- Increases the water-holding capacity of soil
- Loosens clay soils and helps sandy soils retain water
- Promotes soil fertility
- Stimulates healthy root development
- Reduces reliance on petroleum-based fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides
- Reduces the need for irrigation
- Retains and filters stormwater
- Controls erosion and stormwater sediment
