WARNING! Sewage sludge is toxic. Food should not be grown in "biosolids." Join the Food Rights Network.

SkyRocket is a British Columbia, Canada product sold as fertilizer but made from sewage sludge.[1] Hundreds of communities across the U.S. sell toxic sludge products that are typically renamed biosolids and sold or given away as "fertilizer" or "compost" (and often even labeled or marketed as "natural" or "organic"). As a Canadian product, SkyRocket is regulated by the British Columbia government's Organic Matter Recycling Regulation (OMRR) and the Fertilizers Act, administered by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA).[2] SkyRocket is sold at the Comox Valley Biosolids Composting Facility in Cumberland, BC.

Marketing of SkyRocket

SkyRocket is marketed as "a high-nitrogen soil amendment, made of wood chips mixed with biosolids, which are cured over time to create nutrient-rich mulch."[3]
