Downers Grove Sanitary District turns sewage into 'Class A' fertilizer
Biosolid fertilizer, processed from waste, free
DOWNERS GROVE – The last time most residents see or think about waste leaving the bathroom is when they flush the toilet.
But after the toilet’s “whoosh,” the waste is just beginning a three-year process at the Downers Grove Sanitary District that ends in a safe byproduct available for free to residents as a fertilizer.
The district produces about 4,000 cubic yards of the byproduct, called biosolid fertilizer, each year. And it manages to give away every ounce of the nutrient-rich material to residents, contractors and governmental bodies to fertilize landscaping projects. None of it ends up in landfills.
