Title:PROPOSED DESIGNATION OF BIOSOLIDS COMPOST IN THE COMPREHENSIVE PROCUREMENT GUIDELINES V (CPG V)
RCRA Online Number:14720
Date:07/15/2004
To:Kohorn
From:Dunne
Organization of Recipient:NA
Description: The proposed designation of compost in CPG V does not rename biosolids or sewage sludge as compost or revise the 40 CFR Part 503 Biosolids Rule. Products designated in the CPG are items that federal and other agencies using appropriated federal funds must buy containing recycled content. The guidelines do not pose any requirements on private entities, including organic farmers. The CPG requires agencies to buy compost, identifies the composted materials they should consider, and recommends specific applications for its use. CPG V proposes to add compost made from biosolids and manure to the existing compost designation for yard and food wastes and consolidate all compost designations under one item called “compost made from recovered organic materials”. CPG V would also revise the previous CPG definition of compost.
