Re: Fur From Dog Grooming


I recall a similar posting on another list server.  In this case, the issue was disposal options for human hair from a hair dressing operation.  Apparently, the owner of a hair dressing operation performed an experiment and determined that human hair can be used as an oil absorbent.    There was a concern as to whether human hair could compete with conventional absorbents.

Any ideas for recycling/reusing fur produced from a small dog grooming operation?  About 3 large garbage bags are produced per week; an average of one bag/week has been reused as a method to keep small creatures out of gardens and for compost.  Any alternatives to landfilling would be appreciated.
