Fertilizing with biosolids returns nutrients to the land that might otherwise be lost. Using our biosolids in this way makes environmental and economic sense. The alternative to biosolids use is disposal in the Regional Landfill. With space declining at the Regional landfill, diverting biosolids from the landfill is consistent with the RDN's Zero Waste policy.
Since 1999, RDN biosolids have been beneficially used in agriculture, landfill closures, mine reclamation, and forest fertilization.
