Position Statement on Recycling of Biosolids to Agricultural Land

October 27, 2020

Assured Biosolids has just published a Position Statement on the Recycling of Biosolids to Agricultural Land. This document details the benefits and potential concerns associated with recycling biosolids to agricultural land. The Position Statement concludes that biosolids is a valuable source of nutrients and stable organic matter and that there is no evidence to suggest that recycling biosolids poses a significant risk to the environment or human health, which is supported by the government and fits with the waste hierarchy. Biosolids recycling to land is a safe, sustainable and well-controlled activity due to the range of legislative, good practice and other controls in the Biosolids Assurance Scheme. The Position Statement is available here.
