Our compost is quality: 100% PASS

Jan 31 in Company, Agriculture, Composting


We had our yearly PAS 100 audit carried out this month for the Compost yard.

The Auditor from Organic Farmers and Growers checked all site activities against our standard operating procedures as well as checking all the paperwork and computer records that are kept for incoming materials, compost windrows and outgoing products.

We achieved a 100% pass with no non compliances which is a fantastic result and a great team effort.
The team are responsible for various parts of the operation and without their hard work and professionalism we would not of achieved this result.

Piotr Swiatkowski keeps daily records for the windrows and operates the SLC compost manager system. Pawel Mistecki keeps records for incoming loads and quality of materials as well as operating the shredder and JCB Forklift . John Jacob is responsible for the turning of windrows and screening of products maintaining quality is paramount. All three of these guys also collect daily information about weather conditions and odour release from the site all of which is recorded in the site diary. Graeme fowler is responsible for the weighbridge operation as well as all the administration with compost contracts and sales.

Gavin Bartlett oversees the whole operation and collates all the information from the work force and maintains the PAS 100 documentation ready for audit. Well done boys! Fantastic achievement.
