Biosolids are used on farms, forests, landscapes and gardens, and to reclaim degraded land and old mine sites.
Biosolids provide essential nutrients for sustainable agriculture and healthy crops.
In the forest, biosolids increase forest productivity, increase tree growth, and improve wildlife habitat.
Composts and soil mixes made with biosolids, usually mixed with sawdust, wood chips, bark, yard clippings or crop residues make excellent mulches, composts, and topsoils for gardening and landscaping.
In land reclamation, biosolids are used to replace lost topsoil, where they improve soil fertility and stability and help revegetate the land and decrease erosion.
