Austin, Texas, awards 10-year contract to Synagro to turn toxic sewage sludge into “compost” for city

Monday, April 01, 2019 by

One of the country’s largest producers of biosolids, also known as “biosludge,” has been awarded a massive contract by the city of Austin, Texas, to be its exclusive producer of biosludge “compost” for use in agriculture.

Synagro, which a recent press release describes as “the preeminent provider of biosolids and residuals solutions services in North America,” has officially entered an exclusive, public-private partnership with the city of Austin to take raw sewage from people’s toilets, in essence, and convert it into “fertilizer” for use on food crops.

According to reports, Synagro has already been managing biosolids production for the city of Austin since 2008. But the company will now be given exclusive control over the process of taking raw sewage waste from Austin’s wastewater treatment plants and magically transforming it into “plant food.”

“This contract will enable the City to move to a 100-percent composting solution with Synagro responsible for production of the iconic Dillo Dirt* compost historically produced by the city,” stated Andrew Bosinger, vice president of strategic accounts for Synagro.

The press release adds that, in addition to creating so-called “Dillo Dirt” for the city of Austin, Synagro will also now be producing for Austin a product known as “All Gro,” which it’s marketing as a “high-quality finished compost” that will allegedly “save at least $1.0 million per year” for the Texas capital.

Toxic biosludge created by Synagro commonly sold as “organic” fertilizer

It all sounds wonderful until you realize that the biosolids products being produced by Synagro for Texas’ capital city are little more than hazardous sewage sludge, the full contents of which are unknown.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), which approved biosoludge for application on American land back in 1993, admits that it’s unable to identify every single chemical contaminant that’s contained in biosludge. And yet, it’s routinely applied to America’s food crops as if it were nothing more than harmless dirt.

“Millions of tons of hazardous sewage sludge have subsequently been spread on farmland and public parks in the United States,” reports In These Times about the dangers of biosludge.

“Sometimes it is bagged and sold as ‘organic’ fertilizer and compost in garden supply stores. No matter how it is processed or how slick it is marketed as a fertilizer or soil amendment, putting sewage sludge on land is a health and environmental disaster.”

Biosludged documentary by Brighteon Films blows lid in biosludge scam

Since it’s become one of the biggest scams ever perpetuated on a population that, for the most part, has no idea it even exists, biosludge became the primary subject of a new film by Brighteon Films that exposes it for the toxic scourge that it is.

Entitled Biosludged, this eye-opening film blows the lid off the toxic nature of biosludge, which is nothing more than a money-making fraud for the human waste-processing industry.

Biosludged reveals how the EPA is committing science fraud to allow the ongoing poisoning of our world with toxic sewage sludge that’s being spread on food crops. The criminality and fraud of what’s exposed in this film is truly mind-blowing,” says Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, about this incredible film that’s been two years in the making.

“The film also features many other scientists, researchers and citizen activists who are all working to shine the light on the grotesque practice of cities spreading toxic sewage sludge on farms, crop lands, city parks and forests.”
