The Environmental Benefits of TAGRO

More residents in Tacoma mean more homes, more industry – and more waste. We have learned to view the waste as a resource. TAGRO helps us take recycling to a new level as we reuse what goes down our drains to benefit your yard, garden, and our shared environment. The City of Tacoma recycles about 4,000 dry tons of biosolids each year. This helps benefit our community by:

  • Supporting Home Gardens, Community Gardens, and Food Banks
  • Beautifying our parks and public green spaces
  • Providing education opportuntities
  • Incorporating into commercial properties such as playfields and golf courses

TAGRO is natural, sustainable, and affordable.

TAGRO’s Nutrients are Released Slowly

TAGRO’s unique formulation allows plants to use more nutrients, released slower over time. This means that fewer are wasted and leached into the enviroment.

Soil Conditioned with TAGRO Retains Water Better

The more water the soil retains, the less you have to pull out the hose or sprinkler. And that leaves more natural water flow in our rivers.

Plants and Trees Grow Bigger and Better in TAGRO

More vegetation means more shade and less soil erosion near creeks and rivers, making for healthy and clear water for fish and people to enjoy.   

Community Gardens and TAGRO

Premium TAGRO products are used in community gardens throughout Tacoma and greater Pierce County. The City of Tacoma is proud to support local food production, community building, and equitable food access through the use of TAGRO as a sustainable local resource.
