Composting Animals Requests Rise

Kentucky is seeing a surge in the number of permits being issued to compost dead animals.

The Courier-Journal reports that Washington County began offering an animal composting service in April. Oldham County plans to start doing the same next month. And lots of others are expressing interest.

University of Kentucky environmental compliance director Steve Higgins said composting is a cheap, easy way to dispose of dead livestock and road kill.

Animal composting has been allowed in Kentucky for more than a decade, but state lawmakers eased the process this year by removing a requirement that large animals be cut up before composting.
