"A quarter-ton of roofing shingles, 5 tons of construction debris, some gasoline and diesel fuel, a dead deer and an armadillo. All of this -- and literally tons of additional items, including almost 1,500 pounds of household garbage with everything from aluminum cans to soiled diapers -- is part of a composting experiment in Williamson County that promises to turn this mess into usable soil in just 10 weeks. If it works, solid waste managers here say, it has the potential to radically change how we dispose of trash." (11/29/11)
