Short description: EXTRACT: The restoration of land can considerably benefit from well managed use of organic materials which can substitute for topsoil and fertilisers. However, poorly managed practices can result in risks to water,air and soil quality. This project addresses the need to pull together recent scientific findings into a format suitable for all stakeholders. The objective of this project was to prepare a Code of Practice (CoP) on the use of sludge, composts and other organic material for land restoration. The CoP provides new guidance to stakeholders and thereby positively influences waste practices and land restoration.
