Webb City Taking Steps Toward Composting Operation

Webb City, MO (5/9/16) -- Webb city is working with state and federal agencies to create a compost from limbs and yard waste as well as sludge from their wastewater facility. The sludge has high levels of zinc, but the composting process will dilute the zinc to acceptable levels. The compost will be used on a mined land reclamation project and on habitat restoration project that the city, DNR and the Fish and Wildlife Service is located on.
