El Corazon Compost Facility

El Corazon Compost Facility's address: 3210 Oceanside Blvd, Oceanside, CA 92056

The mission of Agri Service, Inc. is simple: "we support organic sustainability in our local communities by producing products that control erosion, improve the soil and reduce fertilizer and pesticide pollution, while reducing landfill disposal."

El Corazon Compost Facility Background

"Recognizing that traditional methods of green waste disposal such as open burning or landfilling are both inefficient and environmentally unsound, the City of Oceanside partnered with Agri Service, Inc. in 1995 to develop an innovative public-private recycling program. This novel program set out to put incoming organic material to good use at fees below those of landfills. The result? Oceanside’s El Corazon Compost Facility, a landmark green waste compost facility authorized by the CalRecycle, a division of the California Department of Natural Resources."
