Recycling Practices for Environmental Materials

The objectives of this project are to: 1) Gather information on best practices for managing wood wastes and to determine if a centralized composting site is better than on-site chipping and spreading or landfill disposal; 2) review the practices of other SHAs and Districts at KYTC relative to large animal composting; 3) monitor a pilot large animal carcass composting site in District 5 during its initial runs; and 4) identify beneficial uses for those compost materials (e.g. soil amendment) to aid in establishing desirable vegetation.
