An old maxim says, "Waste not, want not."
The city of Lebanon is hoping its waste is something that local farmers will want.
And county officials are supporting the effort.
"It's ultimate in recycling," said Keith Brock, the Marion County solid waste and environmental coordinator.
Each month, the Lebanon wastewater treatment plant produces around 200 tons of biosolids, the byproduct of the treatment process, and city officials would like to give it away for free to Marion County farmers.
