Users of the Balls Ford Road Yard Waste Compost Facility may begin to see changes.
Work is continuing at the Manassas site, where a two-year project began in December.
Through the project, officials hope to expand its recycling and draw waste away from the landfill, according to a release from the Prince William County Solid Waste Division.
Freestate Farms LLC is making an advanced aerobic composting facility in the first of two phases.
It’s expected to process more than 80,000 tons of leaves, grass and other yard waste produced by residents and businesses each year.
The waste is going to be used for compost and fertilizers.
Later on, project leaders are planning to set up an anaerobic digestion and renewable energy that processes and recycles food scraps.
They will also establish an environment agriculture system, which will grow fruits and vegetables using products made at the compost facility.
