Our organic recycling began in the early 1990’s as a entrepreneurial vision of Lamb Farms, Inc – a successful central Indiana family farm since 1963. God, family, responsible farming and giving back have been the focus for 3 generations, and composting and soil amending was a logical addition to their operations. In 2008, under the leadership of long-time family friend Guy Shafer, we became a formal division of Lamb Farms, Inc. and since then AgRecycle has continued to expand in our ability to cost effectively recycle organics that were traditionally entering our land fills as well as convert it to useful amendments that naturally increase the nutrient levels and productivity of our soils. Now AgRecycle not only provides organic recycling for Lamb Farms, but also other area farms and the general public as well.
Our Plans in the Future
AgRecycle is continuing to expand their operations and services with new equipment and new processes. Lamb Farms continues to be their main client, but companies as far as Cincinnati are now using AgRecycle to save money and dispose of their organic waste in an environmentally friendly way.
What’s Happening Nowadays
AgRecycle is growing! Our operations are now able to serve other businesses and organizations as a more cost effective and environmentally friendly way to dispose of organic waste from their operations than a traditional land fill. We also have added a retail store operation that includes various types of mulch, compost and gypsum. We are conveniently located and can accommodate pickups and deliveries locally.
We are Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) certified to accept a wide variety of organic wastes, food wastes, and bio solids. If you are looking for an environmentally friendly and cost-effective partner to dispose of your company’s organic bi- product, give us a call. We would love to help you.
