Waste Diversion

Couple weeks ago they were talking about reducing the amount of waste going to the plant. So they want to restrict grass and leaves away from the plant. Did anyone ever think of dumping the grass and leaves into any hole or leave it on any industrial land they have remediated, It becomes top soil naturally.
Just crank out the top soil from the plant and either give it away in barrels in the spring use it for landscaping on city property. Spread it in the Red Hill or conservation areas or community gardens.
Leaves and grass will become soil in a couple years naturally. Good black loam. And free. Pile it, bulldoze it to turn it and in a couple yrs expose the base for distribution. Well maybe 5 yrs. This does make good clean landfill. One problem is that over time as it decays, it compacts and will invert any hole. You will have to add to the hole or depression.
Tell me there isn't land available to pile this, Try the brown fields off the harbour. Could we do a combo of scrape the contaminated upper and replace with compost. Voila a park in several yrs unlike the vacant ugliness of today.
little pie in the sky but a thought.
