The Third R –Reuse

Amy J. Sausen, Environmental Project Coordinator

Meeting the Challenge for a Healthier Community

slide2

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

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
slide5

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

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
slide10

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.
slide12

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
slide14

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.
slide15

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

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
