Independent Analysis of Tank’s Green Stuff Compost
To provide our prospective and current clients with a high level of understanding, assurance, and trust, Tank’s Green Stuff requested a Certified Crop Adviser (Diaz Agriculture) conduct a complete analysis of its organic compost. The results are available for you, below. Please contact Tank’s with any questions about our process, lab testing, and recommendations for use/application guidelines. The staff at Tank’s will do its best to support all customers with their projects and goals, but makes no claim of being professional crop advisers. Please consider this information alongside your own soil testing, and seek the advice of a Certified Crop Adviser or Cooperative Extension Agent for interpretation, recommendations, and instruction for your soil management program. You will find a copy of the analysis report here.
Tank’s Green Stuff cares about supporting a healthy bat population!
Bring agave plants that have not yet bloomed (large flower spike that shoots up from the middle) to the Tank’s Speedway Recycling & Landfill Facility (7301 E. Speedway), and ask to place the plants in the designated Agave Rescue area. The plants will be picked up and replanted in our communities and landscape where they will be able to live the remainder of their lives and bloom (to support bats and other pollinators). Bats are Important: they control pests such as mosquitos and pollinate numerous plant species. Perhaps one of our favorite plants that they pollinate are agaves–which are used to make tequila, mezcal, and bacanora…! Save agave, save bats, and we can continue to enjoy our favorites regional beverages. Click here to learn more and view a printable flyer.

Tank’s Green Stuff Wins ‘Composter of the Year’ Award
Thank you, Edible Baja Arizona, for spreading the big news! Tank’s Green Stuff 100% Organic Compost is honored to be named the “Composter of the Year” by the US Composting Council. Though incredibly honored by such a prestigious award, we do what we do because we love it: making organic compost for gardeners and farmers near and far is challenging, dirty work. Recycling almost 100,000 tons of green debris each year makes a big impact in our community and to our planet.
