[GreenYes] RE: [CRRA] Ordinances that facilitate on-farm composting


Consider the regulations governing composting on farms in Pennsylvania.  That's supposed to be a model:

Fetzer wines uses alot of composting and we just had Strauss Family Farms speak at our Zero Waste event and they get 95% of all their energy from their manure and then use the residual for composting!

Subject: [CRRA] Ordinances that facilitate on-farm composting
Importance: High

The County of San Diego is discussing revising local ordinances to promote on-farm composting. Our region has a strong agricultural community (Over 6,000 farms, ranks 5th in nation in agricultural value), however our current local regulations are restrictive when it comes to composting at farms. As a vital part of an comprehensive organic materials management strategy, we view returning organic materials to farms as ideal locations to encourage composting.

Can anyone send information on jurisdictions with ordinances that promote on farm composting? We'd like to review model ordinances before considering crafting our own.

Thanks for any leads!
