Regulatory Compliance

NewSoil’s site is inspected and approved on a yearly basis by the NC Department of Environmental Quality and is in compliance with North Carolina State’s Statutes governing solid waste compost facilities.  Our Small Type 3 Solid Waste Compost Facility is permitted for producing Grade A Compost (Permit No. 3216-COMPOST-2017).  NewSoil is also in full compliance with regulations of the City and County of Durham, North Carolina.

NewSoil is in the process of being certified as “officially organic” by the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) at the Washington State Department of Agriculture, a three-year process.  We soon will receive our Seal of Testing Assurance (STA) from the U.S. Composting Council.
