Recycling biosolids returns nutrients to the land. Recycling our biosolids makes good environmental and economic sense. The alternative to recycling biosolids is disposing of biosolids 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 forestry.
