Charleston County Compost Facility Tour

Monday, November 16th 9:00 - 12:00

Cost $30

Charleston County's composting facility was recognized as the 2014 Composting Program of the Year by the U.S. Composting Council. The Bees Ferry Compost Facility is the largest compost producer in South Carolina and one of the largest on the East Coast. The 28-acre facility which employs nearly 30 people, is also the only facility in the state permitted to process food waste from commercial and institutional businesses. The compost produced at the facility has been approved by Clemson University for certified organic operations - the only producer in South Carolina to have this certification. 

Experience the Bees Ferry Compost Facility up close in a one-hour tour led by on-site experts. Participants will have the opportunity to walk around the facility, see all aspects of the composting process and ask questions. NOTE: Close-toed shoes are required. Please dress appropriately for the weather. Learn More about Charleston County Compost Facility.
