Yet again, laboratory analysis has shown the compost produced by Cedar Environmental at the Douma MRF to be of "EQS" Designation. The "EQS" (Exceptional Quality Standard) designation in the Federal 503 regulations, allows unrestricted use of the compost in agriculture and for use on lawns and gardens.
