Vanguard Renewables held a private outdoor ceremony Thursday morning to officially open its new Organics Recycling Facility. The advanced recycling facility will process expired goods, off-spec batches and any other food and beverages deemed unsafe to eat.

Farmers talk about the benefits of hosting a Farm Powered anaerobic digester on their farm including a diversified income stream to sustain the farm for future generations.
