Fresh start for North Kitsap composting facility

A year after closing, the former Emu Composting & Topsoil site in North Kitsap has been revived under new ownership.

The Ecology Road facility was purchased by the owners of Port Orchard-based New Day Recycling, and is now open as Olympic Organics. The company will provide compost and topsoil from grass, brush, manure, wood wastes and other materials, according to a news release.

“We want to continue to offer what Emu Composting did, but with our own spin,” founder Jeff West said.

Emu Composting owners filed for bankruptcy in late 2012 and closed the business in February 2013. The Wests purchased the property for $70,000 in December, according to county records.
