NuTerra Breaks Ground on State-of-the-Art Haines City Organics Recycling Facility

First aerated static pile (ASP) facility in Florida provides most economical approach

JACKSONVILLE and HAINES CITY, Fla.—NuTerra, a trusted project and service delivery partner to the wastewater and biosolids management industry, today announced the groundbreaking of a new organics recycling facility that initiates the second phase of Haines City’s plan to produce a high-quality compost product to be offered to residents and surrounding communities for lawns, athletic fields, golf courses and agriculture. In his remarks at the groundbreaking, NuTerra CEO Aaron Zahn credited Haines City for its environmental leadership.

“As one of the few municipalities with state-of-the-art wastewater treatment and composting facilities, Haines City is demonstrating its environmental leadership. The new facility will be the first of its kind in Florida, providing the most economical and environmentally friendly approach to organics recycling.”

Using NuTerra’s proprietary process control system, the facility continuously monitors and automates the composting process. This streamlined approach eliminates the need to reposition probes and avoids disruption of the process from exposure to rain, humidity, and other factors that impact the active composting and curing processes. NuTerra’s facility design ensures a high-quality end product and minimal odor nuisances for nearby neighbors.

Haines City Utility Director Mike Stripling said, “NuTerra is making it economically possible to live up to our States’s high environmental standards. By recycling and reusing biosolids, yard waste, and other organic waste, we’re reducing disposition costs with far fewer trips to the landfill and mitigating nutrient and ground water pollution. The facility will provide surrounding communities an economically and environmentally advantageous outlet for their organics waste. In addition, offsetting the use of commercial fertilizers with compost by our local athletic fields will result in superior water retention properties and allow for the slow release of beneficial nutrients.”

NuTerra designed the new facility and will build, operate, and maintain it at the wastewater treatment plant’s property site.
