Welcome to the United Sludge-Free Alliance
Millions of tons of sewage sludge are used to fertilize fields where your family's food is grown, parklands, athletic fields, and even playgrounds.
Sludge is a toxic stew of not only human, waste, but everything else that goes down every drain. This site is intended to give you the information you need, whether you're learning about this issue for the first time or you've been fighting the use of sludge as a fertilizer for years. Our site offers hundreds of downloadable articles, videos, toolkit resources, and the special features listed below.
Created by the team at United Sludge-Free Alliance.
