Maybe we could get some of the firefighters here to 'educate' their peers into responsible, environmental handling of hazardous materials.
The literature I have shows firefighters in action utilizing this material across the International scene.
PeatSorb CAN be picked up and disposed of in a landfill because it is approved TCLP Non-leachable. Meaning it will stay retained in suspension in the PeatSorb until it bio-degrades naturally. Kitty litter can not, neither can Oil-Dry

Trying to convience even fourwheelers that they should have this material with them trailriding is an uphill battle. I don't think more than 2 dozen GLFWDA members have this with them. (very sad) Even less from the non-organized ranks. Trying to convience municipalities will only happen from the inside OR some news reporter gets wind of irresponsible actions and writes a scathing news report. In either case, compliance with new methods and procedures only occurs nowadays due to external pressure, not from doing what's right. Even more so if it might cost a little more.
