Perdue AgriRecycle: Another Major Step in Protecting the Chesapeake Bay

We expanded on our $68 million investment nutrient recycling on Delmarva with the addition of a $12.5 million capital investment in a composting operation. The Perdue AgriRecycle composting facility went online in late 2016. This continued our commitment to handle surplus poultry litter from Delmarva chicken farms and added the capability to recycle other agricultural by-products that were previously land applied.

agriSoil

AgriRecycle can compost poultry litter; nutrient-rich by-products such as treated biosolids from poultry plant wastewater; and other organic material, such as soybean stems.

Perdue AgriRecycle, which celebrated its 15th anniversary in 2016, has already handled more than two billion pounds of poultry litter. In 2015, 85% of the nutrients were moved to locations outside the Chesapeake Bay region.
