SKY ROCKET COMPOST: A nutrient-rich soil amendment for lawns and gardens, created by the Comox Valley Regional District by composting a mix of wood chips and biosolids.
SkyRocket is made of wood chips mixed with biosolids, which are cured over time to create a nutrient-rich mulch.  Biosolids are derived from the wastewater treatment process - they are the sold waste particles remaining once wastewater has been treated.  Biosolids contain macronutrients and organic matter that can replenish soil and help it to retain moisture.
Due to the nutrient levels in this product, SkyRocket should be used as a soil conditioner or supplement, rather than as a topsoil or fertilizer.  It can be applied annually or as recommended by soil analysis.  As when using any manure product, hands should be washed after applying or handling the product.
