Composting is an important aspect of waste management throughout the world. Product from compost operations can be seen in various applications such as:
Topdressing for yards and golf courses
Compost socks, which are mesh tubes filled with compost that will slow and filter water on a construction site, capturing soil and reducing erosion
Erosion control on disturbed areas such as construction sites, development (and planting) projects and exposed stream banks
Organic fertilizer or soil conditioners
