FAQ(v): What are the necessary materials for composting livestock mortalities?

In this video, our waste reduction specialist shows us that mixing wood chips works best for degrading animal carcasses.

I’m curious if he’s experimented with shredded leaves and/or sawdust instead, as they compost quicker than wood chips.

Either way, I’m really happy this is being taught instead of simply hauling the carcasses off to an incinerator, which is definitely not the way to go.
