In keeping with USCC standards, St. Louis Composting continues to regularly sample and test its compost, using STA-approved labs to report chemical, physical and biological properties. Customers receive a handout with their compost purchase that includes the name and description of the compost product, a statement that it has been sampled and tested, identification of the feedstocks used to make it and instructions regarding appropriate uses and applications. The label allows users to easily compare compost products and make informed purchasing decisions. Test results are available upon request.
“Our customers can expect the same high quality product they are accustomed to, only now they will have the added confidence of knowing it meets STA standards,” said founder Patrick Geraty.
