Recycling Non-Nutrient Agricultural Waste

Jennifer Jarvis, Stakeholder Communications and Marketing Advisor, OMAFRA

Are you water wise?

Disposing of non-nutrient agricultural waste responsibly needs to be a year-round effort.

Burning and burying non-nutrient agricultural waste can pollute the air, contaminate water and can have other potential harmful impacts on the environment, which can harm people and livestock. Consider recycling or reusing your waste instead - recycling and reuse not only lowers your dump costs, it can also help you keep your property waste-free, and protects your soil and local drinking water supplies.

Not sure where to start? See CleanFARMS' Guide to Recycling Non-Nutrient Agricultural Waste in Ontario for ways to reduce the amount of agricultural waste going to landfill.
