After four days of Strathmore Stampede, the clean up is a long process and can create some interesting waste, one being the giant pile of hay from chuckwagon village.  According to Green For Life's website, “The environmental benefits of diverting organic materials from landfill include reduced methane emissions (a potent greenhouse gas), and decreased leachate quantities from landfills. From a life-cycle perspective, other benefits, such as the production of valuable compost and renewable energy, can also be derived from the diversion of organic materials from disposal depending on the processing method selected.”
