Over the past decade, more and more compost facilities have opened due to public funding, stipulations in solid waste plans, and the public requiring more waste diversion. At the same time, with the help of technology, composting facilities have grown in size, capable of processing more waste on a smaller footprint. Recent complaints from surrounding neighbors about odor and health concerns are being directed at these large-scale composting facilities.
