Title: Draft interim guidelines for the utilization of waste (other than sewage sludge) on agricultural lands
Author: Sludge and Waste Utilization Committee
Abstract: These Guidelines outline the criteria governing the quality, use, and application rates allowed for spreading liquid and solid waste materials on agricultural land in Ontario. Some off-farm wastes have value in improving soil quality, in enhancing crop production or in promoting ground cover, while others can be detrimental. It is the intent of these guidelines to provide a basis for distinguishing between beneficial and detrimental wastes. The guidelines are, therefore, of interest to producers of recyclable waste, municipalities and the staff of the three participating Ontario Government Ministries - Agriculture and Food, Health and Environment. The Guidelines may be of special interest by helping municipalities and industry to decide which wastes are potentially eligible for land spreading and which must be disposed of in other ways.
