Green Waste Diversion Alternative
In 2016 a new report just released from Long Island, New York has linked ground water contamination with the composting site there. Because the composting process is not efficient at breaking down pesticides, unlike the BioPac'r ensiling process that degrades pesticides. Pesticide residuals from clippings are leaching downward into the water below. This is going to be a huge blow to the entire composting industry. Composting sites will be required to put in place an impervious concrete barrier (pad) to conduct all composting operations to prevent leakage, a move that could cost the industry trillions of dollars nationally, unless an alternative to composting, like BioPac'r is adopted. Now is the time to act before the EPA forces these new regulations and before your composting site is tested and forced to cleanup the ground water.

Composting is a revenue neutral proposal at best so why wouldn't landfills want to increase their revenue by ten fold by diverting green waste at the source? For example, in California with Green waste diversion goals approaching 75% by 2020, the real money is going to be in grass clipping silage, not compost or field applications. The oversupply of composted products is already being felt. As more and more green waste is restricted as an ADC, green waste will be shifted to the composting piles, creating more and more supply until the product is worthless (Compost Burnout). If landfills have to pour concrete pads to compost upon, the compost will truly be worthless.
Composting and Lawn Clipping Data
Of the 30 million acres of lawn clippings that enter landfills (nationally) each week, 7 million tons are composted, leaving 23 million tons to be buried or burned. According to the US Census, composting has been declining since 2010. So what does the future hold for Composting? BioPac'r™ is the Future.
Composting is a revenue neutral proposal. With Green waste diversions goals approaching 75% in 2020, the real money is going to be in lawn clipping silage.
1. The Footprint of most small landfills can still require several football fields of space, including special infrastructure like drainage and electrical hookups.
2. The composting Equipment Investment is typically tens if not hundreds of thousands of dollars for tub grinders, bulldozers and compost pile turners.
3. Dedicated, trained, and experienced Higher Wage Staff must operate and maintain the composting equipment and the larger bulldozers and front end loaders. --Billed to the composting budget!
4. Composting Odor is becoming more of an increasing conflict as urban sprawl starts to encroach upon long time sites adjoining landfill properties.
5. According to the EPA and US Census Report, Composting is Declining. Shrinking markets for compost due to oversupply, means that most compost is being sold for below cost, break even or at worst given away for free.
6. Is composting creating more greenhouse gases than it's worth?
The cost of landfill composting, if looked at closer, has a few downsides:
- Dual purpose equipment lifespan is decreased, large equipment used to turn the composts come with larger repair bills when they do break down.
- The smell of the compost piles is overwhelming for residents down wind and that my friends is a social cost!
- The footprints required to compost are large and it's harder and harder to get rid of the compost.
- Consumer Demand for compost over the next 5 years will decrease due to over supply. As regulations concerning ADC puts pressure on operators to eliminate altogether green waste cover, the only alternative is to compost or use in ground applications. This leaves composting sites with no other alternative but to give their product away until they go bankrupt!
Silage Bags & Plastic is Recyclable
BioPac'r silage bags are 100% recyclable. As farmers begin to accumulate bags, landscapers with the BioPac'r can come by and compress (cube up) the plastic in their BioPac'r for FREE.
Why would landscapers do this service for free? Landscaper come to you and take this waste plastic off your hands for a small fee to deliver it to a recycling center. A win - Win relationship.
Maybe you don't feed Grass Clipping Silage YET? Farmers dealing with their own silage crops, inundated by the silage plastic sheeting (that is otherwise ending up in your local landfill) can contact us at Info@biopacr.com to locate the nearest landscaper to take this waste off your hands.

Just For Your Situation
Upsides to a BioPac'r Packaging & Processing System
1. Composting is a revenue neutral proposal at best. With Green waste diversion goals approaching 75% by 2020, the real money is going to be in lawn clipping silage. The oversupply of composted products has already arrived. As more and more green waste is restricted as an ADC, what then? Real Green Waste Diversion will come by creating Lawn Clipping Silage and YCC will help you by contracting the feed that your landscaper produce, to local livestock producers wanting safe, low cost, high nutritional value livestock feed. If waste haulers own and rent the BioPac'r to landscapers, you also will realize a new revenue stream and more importantly, a revolutionary concept to divert green waste and the landfill operator will never have to handle the waste.
2. The Smaller Footprint can save over 75% of the current composting area. The BioPac'r™ doesn't require any special drainage or electrical hookups.
3. The investment in the BioPac'r™ System is as little as $16,000 dollars, Not Hundreds of Thousands of dollars.
4. The operation of a BioPac'r™ and our Patent Pending Packaging Process can be a one person job requiring limited training. This is a perfect position for a seasonal, part-time or Entry Level Operator.
5. There is No Odor. The ensiling process takes place in an airtight container. If air can't get in, the molasses smelling silage can't get out. Don't get fooled by impersonator devices or systems that mimic agricultural ensiling systems, only BioPac'r™ creates true Grass Clipping Silage™ pioneered by Yellowstone Compact & Commodities.
6. If composting only uses 7 million tons weekly, then the remaining 23 million tons should be ensiled!
....What Are You Waiting For? A BioPac'r™ at your facility not only pays for itself, it will create a positive revenue stream with all the benefits described above.
YCC will Write Your Grass Clipping Receiving Protocol
Every Solid Waste Facility is so different in how they accept waste; we will take the pressure off. YCC will write the specific procedure where commercial mowing companies can deliver their waste clippings to your facility, in a manner that allows your staff to correctly identify and label the clippings from different landscapers that can potentially make up any of the 1-Ton bags your site is packaging.
Quality Control is very important to the silage users like farmers, dairies, feedlots, and ranchers to have the ability to track back inconsistencies in the silage to the exact contributor at your site. This procedure is required to have the ability to take corrective action concerning inconsistencies from time to time, with the exact same concerns when corn or alfalfa silage is fed to livestock.
By tracing back and educating the contributor of the clippings in question, our new industry and commodities market can improve our Grass Clipping Silage™ product to help feed the livestock.
