Like paper, plastics, and glass, biosolids and other organic residuals ("organics") were once considered "wastes" – too yucky and challenging to recycle. Yet they contain abundant nutrients and organic matter that can benefit soils. And they can generate renewable energy. Properly treated, tested, and managed, biosolids and other organics enhance the environment, help farmers and other landowners, and serve the communities that generate and receive them. They are in high demand as tools for sustainability!
