Golf course grass clippings are a costly odor causing nuisance, and a potential site of chemical build-up and ground water contamination.
Grass contaminated with insecticides, herbicides, and pesticides, are a well-established source of contamination in insects, fishes, plants, people, and soil.
Offering Organic Grass Clipping Digestion Systems
In many states, grass clippings are no longer accepted at landfills. Regardless of bans, however, grass clippings and chemical residues either in association with the clippings or not, still accumulate in many golf course disposal areas.
As clippings decompose they often create unacceptable odors and release pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers into the ground water.
With increasing pressure to reduce disposal of grass clippings and associated chemicals, many golf courses are seeking alternative methods for grass clipping disposal.
Natural Pesticide, Herbicide and Fertilizer Remediation
The best way to reduce odor, break down treatment chemicals and manage grass clippings is to digest them with a Hydros, Inc. Grass Clipping Digester.
When treated in a microbial Hydros system, digested grass clippings are decomposed into valuable plant nutrients and organic matter, as well as rendering many of the resulting chemicals less harmful.
A Safe Alternative To Grass and Clipping Landfill Disposal
Grass clipping digesters have been in service for greater than four summers at Cape Cod golf courses, and have consistently reduced odor, simplified the organic disposal of waste, and have been easily maintained.
Maintain Grass Clipping Digesters In a Few Minutes Per Month
Each system is custom installed by the golf course management, following the highly successful grass clipping digester design.
An appropriate plastic tank is required, with Hydros, Inc. providing the operating system and monthly supplies of bacteria and nutrients.
