Waste

Know the old adage, one person’s trash is another one’s treasure? In the case of many industries, and particularly in cannabis cultivation and processing, this saying is especially pertinent.

Some operations still dump used soil, nutrient-laden wastewater, stems and other organic matter into the municipal waste stream or worse, into streams or just in a pit out back, but increasingly there are buyers for this so-called trash.

Extractors can pull cannabinoids from a wide range of plant material, conventional farms may take gently-used growing medium, nutrients can be pulled from wastewater and recovered, and almost any waste material can even be converted into a useful gas and/or electricity.

We can help you understand your waste stream, identify opportunities to shrink and monetize your cultivation by-products, and reduce a large portion of your overall environmental footprint.
