Garden Glory is a mixture of yard waste and biosolids. The yard waste comes from residential and commercial activities in Clallam county. The biosolids are from the treatment of wastewater at the Wastewater Treatment Plant, and are strictly monitored in accordance with state and federal requirements. This compost meets the standards for "Class A" pathogen reduction, vector attraction reduction, and pollution concentration limits.
For information about gardening with biosolid compost, see this Washington State University Extension publication (PDF). Garden produce grown in biosolids compost cannot be sold as USDA certified organic.
The City of Port Angeles also participates in the Seal of Testing Assurance Program, sponsored by the U.S. Composting Council. You can view a four minute video describing this international testing program which certifies that compost products have been tested, on a defined schedule, in accordance with proven, compost-specific analytical procedures. Test results are available on request.
