Organic Compost and Mulch in Illinois2019-10-31T13:01:56-06:00

Compost and Mulch Supplier

Midwest Companies provides comprehensive industrial waste recycling services and supports Illinois agriculture and crops by creating organic compost and mulch from waste that would otherwise end up in landfills. Creating organic compost and mulch is an industrial waste solution that begins at our very own waste transfer facility.

Our organic compost is derived from “green” waste including grass, leaves, and food waste. Farmers and landscapers love our proprietary agricultural compost blend because it effectively rebuilds, restores, and adds nutrients, organic matter and natural nitrogen to the soil.

Our organic mulch products are made from recycled yard and wood waste.  Chicago and Rockford park districts and public schools as well as many additional park districts in the Greater Chicago, IL area use Midwest Companies mulch products.

To further help small and large scale farmers and landscape suppliers manage production capacity and see a profitable harvest, Midwest Companies created a proprietary blend of fertilizer soil amendment. BeNeSoil contains a unique balance of three macro-nutrients proven to improve the health of your soil during drought or heavy rainfall.

Need help spreading our organic compost, bio-solids, soil amendments, or gypsum? We offer custom spreading services  in Illinois, Wisconsin, and Iowa.

Benefits of Organic Compost

  • Stimulates soil health and improves crop production.
  • Maintains food for beneficial microbes to assure the proper decomposition of crop residue.
  • Provides organic matter, which is the governor of moisture for the soil.
  • Water efficiency because organic matter holds five (5) times its weight in water.
  • Plants are then less stressed from the heat and drought during times of extreme temperatures.
  • Increasing organic matter will improve soil tilth, making it more productive and easier to work into the soil.
  • Compost will loosen clay soils allowing better root penetration, improved air & water movement which means better nutrient availability for crops.

Midwest Companies’ Client Testimonials

“Do not hesitate to go here fro your organic compost needs! Will update review after I see results, but the Manager, Louie, was one of the most genuine people I’ve talked to at a business in awhile. I called about compost, and we ended up having a long conversation about sustainable agriculture practices and why conventional farming is destroying our land. This place smelled amazing, like Earth, and Nature, and the smell of organic material decomposing is wonderful when you begin to understand and work with, not against nature. We pulled right into the yard, they were turning the compost, and no one was gagging. We were all appreciating the hard work going into moving all the composted material around. Do not hesitate to do business with this respectable company! Loui even followed up with me to make sure everything went smooth with picking it up.” Michael Stahulak

“The compost is a clean material that is consistent and easy to spread with my manure spreader. I feel it is a great input to use as part of my Nutrient Management Plan. It is the least expensive input available to me , and I have recommended Midwest Material Management’s compost to other farmers.” Matt Busse – Busse Farms, Waterman IL.

“I had compost spread on top of a hill on my field that was lacking soil nutrients, and the crop was not growing well. The following year, there was a significant increase in my soybean yield, the beans were all the way up the stalk and the beans were taller. The compost works very well conditioning the soil along with its added benefits to the crop. I plan to spread compost on the remaining part of my field.” Dan Schultz – Bristol, IL.

Facts & Benefits: Resource conservation

Applying just 2″ of compost in lieu of the traditional 6″ of topsoil, which is typically of unknown origin and quality, reduces project material cost by up to 2/3! The compost will provide additional benefits as mentioned earlier on this page, that some commercial topsoil just cannot offer.
