Maryland’s Smart Solution for Organics Recycling
Where Ecology Meets Economy
Our newest organics recycling facility, located on the Maryland Food Center campus in Jessup, MD, is the first anaerobic digester of its scale in the state. The facility is capable of recycling 110,000 tons of organics annually to produce approximately 312,000 MMBtu of renewable natural gas for energy and 16,575 tons of rich, fertile soil amendment for agricultural and other land use. The resulting greenhouse gases prevented from being released into the atmosphere has the equivalent environmental impact of 69,061 acres of US Forests in one year, or 82 times the size of Central Park.

Maryland Requires Businesses to Recycle Organic Byproducts
Are you breaking the law? Maryland requires businesses to recycle food residuals. If you generate at least 1 ton per week of food residuals and are located within 30 miles of an organics recycling facility, like our Jessup facility, you are required to separate and divert food residuals away from final disposal in landfills and incinerators.
