ABSTRACT
The author comments on claims made by British environment minister Joan Ruddock with respect to the proposed changes in the waste permitting system which control composting on farms. He believes that the abolition of Paragraph 12 for on-farm composting is not a viable alternative. He thinks the risks from small-scale on-farm composting are extremely small there is no significant bad record of this and there is plenty of evidence to show that it can be done properly to deliver reduced trucking on the road and lower costs for local authorities.
