As a new homeowner on a tributary on the Chesapeake on the Eastern Shore, I dont understand WHY there isnt a massive effort to mobilize animal and livestock waste as free compost for gardeners of homeowners...I would even pay for this service if I knew where it would be accessible each week...Why not bag up the waste for it to be recycled in the gardens of homeowners?...This would prevent runoff from spilling into the bay and keep sound garden practices going.
Also, why arent more people taking advantage of remodeling their existing homes along the Chesapeake rather than building new homes and cutting down more forests and destroying more wetlands and bulding more septic systems for new homes...Home building is a major source of pollution for the Bay, despite what the developers say....And home remodeling of already existing homes would give a shot to the local economy as it provides thousands of jobs for local contractors like painters and landscapers and carpenters and electricians.....Local contractors get paid more directly by homeowners rather than being "reimbursed" a major developer who's also a polluter...So its a win win situation that also protects the Bay.
