Incoming trucks are directed to a scaled dock where containers are unloaded, inspected, and documented. Containers are emptied, and material is prepared for sorting.
Sorters segregate material into two main streams: Organics and Inorganics
Organics – cannabis plant material, biomass, grow medium, edible/food stuff, etc.
Inorganics – packaged product, contaminated disposables, vape carts, plastic, glass, metal, etc.
Organic material is separated into two streams: Fibrous and Non-Fibrous.
Fibrous material such as cannabis stalks and stems are cleaned, processed, and bailed for hemp.
Rendering of organic cannabis material, unrecognizable and unusable, with other organic non-cannabis material to create a pre-compost.
Material blend is combined with beneficial microbes and composted for up to 6 months.
Inorganic materials are sorted and separated into like items, depending upon their substrate (i.e. plastic, glass, metal).
Cannabis material is separated from non-cannabis material through specialized treatment and processing.
(i.e. edibles removed from bags, balms from jars, cartridges from vaporizers, etc.)
Isolated cannabis items are further processed, sorted, and rendered unrecognizable and unusable per State requirement.
Recyclable items (i.e. glass, plastic, metal, batteries) are bailed and sent to partner recycling facilities for further treatment.
Organic materials are diverted back to the “Organics Sorting”.
Waste materials that are not suitable for recycling or composting are shipped to a partner transformation facility and converted into a renewable energy/fuel source.
