All About Com-Til
A biosolids compost produced by Department of Public Utilities, Com-Til is sold for public use in central Ohio and beyond. While it is similar to other organic soil amendments and can be used in the same ways, Com-Til is uniquely usable as a nutrient-rich composted mulch.
Gardeners, landscapers, tree farms, and some area golf courses use Com-Til… some of your neighbors are using it too.
Com-Til provides organic material and carbon to soils and improves physical properties; it “breaks up” hard clay soil… and healthy soil means healthy plants and trees.
How to Use Com-Til
Com-Til can be tilled into existing soil, blended with topsoil or sand, spread over earth, sod or grass as a top-dress, used as an in-fill for remediation projects, or any application to improve the health of the soil. It can also be used as a fertilizing mulch for landscaping needs.
Just as with any lawn fertilizer or soil amendment, you should handle Com-Til compost with gloves.
How Com-Til Is Made
It is produced by "extended aerated static pile" method.
Composting is a year-round operation, and we have 35 acres to mix, compost, cure, screen, and store the product.
Other readily available composts are made from food scraps or manure; Com-Til is made from wood chips and treated biosolids. Our composting process allows Com-Til to meet regulatory requirements and be classified as “exceptional quality” – this means there are no remaining pathogens, and Com-Til can be used safely without restriction.

About the Compost Facility
For over 30 years our primary function is the production of Com-Til compost and mulching products. Working with both Jackson Pike and Southerly Wastewater Treatment Plants (of the Division of Sewerage and Drainage), our 35-acre site is home to one of the largest composting operations in central Ohio.
We are located between State Route 104 and the Scioto River, just south of Route 665 / London-Groveport Road. Directions
For questions/additional information call 614-645-3153 or Email. We love to talk about what we do! Or you can schedule a tour of the facility. Anyone can visit during business hours – our office staff is available to answer questions, offer information about Com-Til, and give you a tour of the building and outdoor operations (weather & schedule permitting). Please NOTE: we do prefer to schedule tours, especially if the group is larger than four.
