Who we are

We turned over 1.5 million pounds of food waste into compost in 2022…
and we've only just begun

We're providing a more sustainable way to deal with waste.

Why compost?

By recycling organic waste from landfills and manufacturing compost, we are providing a more sustainable way to deal with waste while also being better for the environment.

CHT Resources operates a compost manufacturing facility in Austin Colorado. We recycle organic waste such as septic, biosolids, food waste, cannabis waste and yard waste into nutrient rich compost. This process reduces methane gas generated at landfills and helps build healthy soil with the compost, which benefits the climate and environment.
