When pollutant discharges to oceans, rivers, and other water bodies are curtailed, the pollutant loadings to these bodies are decreased. Moreover, in some cases, substances that can be pollutants when discharged to a body of water can be beneficially reused for irrigation. For example, recycled water may contain higher levels of nutrients, such as nitrogen, than potable water. Application of recycled water for agricultural and landscape irrigation can provide an additional source of nutrients and lessen the need to apply synthetic fertilizers.
A sprinkle of organic fertilizer from the garden centre. If the compost pile develops a foul odour, it may not be getting enough air. Loosen up the pile, break up clumps, unblock vents and perhaps add some wood chips to help the pile breath. Turning the pile always helps aeration.
Sewage and animal dung also produce methane. If you put this waste in a closed container, it decays and produces methane gas. This can be used to make electricity. Many villages in India and China use methane to provide heat and light for their homes. There is also a wonderful example of recycling in the east of England. A big chicken farm, which produces meat and eggs, also produces tonnes of dung. Dung is a good fertilizer, but the factory produced too much. Nobody wanted it. So the farmer built a small power station which produces electricity from chicken dung.
