WM of Arizona opens organics facility

Waste Management of Arizona has opened the Maricopa Organics Recycling Facility located at its Sierra Estrella facility, developed in collaboration with Garick LLC. Garick LLC is a manufacturer, marketer and distributor of biomass fuel supply, organic lawn and garden products. Waste Management of Arizona will collect green waste such as yard and clean wood waste recovered from the company’s transfer stations, which Garick will process into biomass wood fuel, which will be sold primarily to Frito-Lay to run its Casa Grande, Arizona facility. In addition to biomass wood fuel, Garick will produce compost and mulch for local use.
