Tri-County Hazardous Waste and Recycling Program (Tri-County Recycling) has awarded Dirt Hugger a $50,000 grant for equipment to be used at The Dalles Black Gold Mine composting location. In our eyes, Tri-County Recycling is greatly responsible for the genesis and launch of Dirt Hugger through their investment in a comprehensive study conducted by Cascadia Consulting this past winter. Their feasibility study concluded that local commercial composting is the best alternative for handling our regional organic material. The Study coupled with the grant funding thus catalyzed commercial composting in the Columbia Gorge region. An enormous thank you goes out to Tri-County Recycling, their staff: David Skakel, Glenn Pierce, and Cindy Brown, plus the entire Tri-Counties board.
WELCOMEDirt Hugger is a regional composting company that supports a sustainable, local economy by collecting, and processing valuable nutrients into organic soils.
