The Third R –Reuse

Amy J. Sausen, Environmental Project Coordinator

Meeting the Challenge for a Healthier Community


Slide2 l.jpg

Quality Compost

  • Quality compost begins with quality partners – 2nd Season Recycling and many local municipalities

  • Produce WDNR approved S100 compost

  • Produce to USCC standards

  • Large inputs = quality results


Slide3 l.jpg

2nd Season Recycling

  • Currently recycling

    • Green waste (composting)

    • Wood waste (construction and demolition)

    • Asphalt Shingles

      • Road base, golf cart paths, pedestrian paths, bike paths, etc

    • Gypsum (drywall)

      • Agricultural soil amendment

    • Metal

    • Plastic

    • Cardboard and Paper

Red B Select System

  • Compost Blanket Seeding

    • Blowing well cured mature landscape compost with seed onto suitably prepared soil

    • Innate characteristics of compost allow for

      • Increased germination rates

      • Decreased germination time

      • Improved stand establishment

Results

From This…

To This…

To This…

60-70% faster than conventional seeding


Slide7 l.jpg

Sediment Control

  • Starts with “Soxx” technology.

  • HDPE woven soxx filled with a by-product of the composting process called “overs”.

  • Twice the flow rate of silt fence

  • Up to 96% Sediment Removal

  • No trenching

  • Entirely Bio-degradable products

  • Chemically active compost binds nutrients

Failed


Slide9 l.jpg

Success!


Slide10 l.jpg

Sediment Control

  • A 12” diameter soxx is equivalent to a 36” tall silt fence

  • Except that it works better, doesn’t have catastrophic failure and is entirely bio-degradable.

Living Walls

What is a Living Wall?

  • Long (108’) polypropylene mesh tubes filled with engineered growing media

  • Extruded on site

  • 4 diameters can be intermixed for height

  • Near seamless lengths as long as you want

  • Can be seed injected, plugged, liner planted, and compost seeded or mortared

  • Any soil type and any terrain

Living Walls


Slide14 l.jpg

Living Walls

  • A Green alternative to conventional slope stabilization

  • Reduce your carbon footprint using local materials.

  • Long-term stability created by plant material which also attracts wildlife

  • Walls can be near vertical.

Rain Gardens

  • Rain garden – residential scale

  • Bio-infiltration device – commercial scale

  • Issues

    • Must have S100 compliant compost

    • Difficult to meet specifications with our native soils

    • Designed a completely engineered media to meet the WDNR guidelines for both content and performance


Slide16 l.jpg

Rain Gardens

  • WDNR defined soil media

    • 40% silica sand

    • 30% compost (S100 specs)

    • 30% topsoil (sandy loam)

  • Engineered media to meet these specifications for particle size, organic matter, and percolation rates as well as support plant growth

  • Red B Rain Garden Mix
