Do you know where your manure goes?
Landfill or Compost?
A large portion of manure hauled from stables is taken to landfills!
Changing Manure Streams is trying to change that!
ü Do you have extra manure?
ü Interested in possibly lowering hauling costs and labor?
ü Do you want your manure to be recycled?
Join a Manure Run!
The purpose of a Manure Run is to work with manure hauling companies to identify pockets of stables who have manure to remove. By sourcing manure from specific locations, the hauler can more economically pick up manure and deliver it to a composting facility, providing an environmentally sound way to recycle manure.
Currently only in Lake, McHenry and Cook Counties
This project is sponsored by a grant from the Great Lakes Water Quality program
