Dirt Doctors Named November “Innovation Rocks!” Winner

Tuesday, November 2nd, 2010

It’s a dirty job, but for doing it well, Dirt Doctors has been named the “Innovation Rocks!” award winner by the New Hampshire Business Resource Center for the month of November.

dirt-doctors2Dirt Doctors, a landscaping material and services company, was recognized for its exemplary efforts in wood recycling/composting. Since 1989, the company’s 31 acre wholesale recycling facility has been state and federally approved to perform composting and wholesale/retail mulch production and distribution.

Dirt Doctors accepts clean wood, brush and yard waste for free from state, federal and local businesses as well as homeowners. It composts all yard waste into organic compost, plant bed mix and ultimate planting mix, making some of the finest soils in the Granite State.

Raw products are checked at the company’s scale house for contaminants or non-organic content at which point they’re added to the composting stream for future use as compost or planting mixes. Wood waste is stored and processed into mulch or bio fuels.

“This type of recycling is a model practice worthy of emulation by any community or state,” said New Hampshire Division of Economic Development Interim Director Roy Duddy. “By turning these raw materials into planting mix and bio fuels, Dirt Doctors has demonstrated that utilizing sustainable practices makes good business sense as well as good environmental sense.”
