Agri-Cycle (ACE) announces its expanded food scrap hauling services and partnerships in Vermont. ACE currently provides food scrap recycling for a number of Vermont businesses, including 17 Hannaford stores, and is now available to provide services for other Vermont businesses, institutions, and multi-family residential units. In addition, ACE’s Vermont operations include plans to manage the compost site located at the Greater Upper Valley Solid Waste District’s Organics Recycling Facility in North Hartland, Vermont.
“I’m excited about our District’s new partnership with Agri-Cycle, as the operator of our Compost Facility and Organics Transfer Station in North Hartland, Vermont” said Tom Kennedy, Manager of the Greater Upper Valley Solid Waste Management District. “As the new operator of both facilities, Agri-Cycle will be able manage liquids, packaged and non-packaged food waste. These materials will be processed to either create soil at our compost facility, or to create electricity through anaerobic digestion, making the facility in North Hartland the first fully integrated organic facility in Vermont.”
Agri-Cycle launched operations in 2013, partnering to support sister company, Exeter Agri-Energy (EAE), itself an offshoot of Stonyvale Farm, a 5th generation dairy farm in Exeter, Maine. ACE operates throughout New England and works with digesters throughout the region, including the new digester at Goodrich Farm in Salisbury, Vermont. ACE’s Vermont operations include plans to manage the compost site located at the Greater Upper Valley Solid Waste District’s Organics Recycling Facility in North Hartland, Vermont. ACE powers about 2,500 homes annually throughout its service region and grows thousands of acres of organic fertilizer (digestate), a product from the anaerobic digestion process.
