Frontier in Ecology - Using Non-Recyclable Paper Waste for Compost

A tidbit from Frontiers in Ecology:

In "Facing up to our paper addiction", the magazine reports that "new research suggests that non-recyclable paper fibers could be used in compost that is better for plants than current horticultural growth media."

And it reduces several wilt diseases!

"This provides an obvious additional commercial use for the vast amount of paper waste generated by offices and homes," say researchers Ralph Noble and colleagues at Warwick University, UK.
