  2. I know that the county originally did the composting at the quarry during the “80s” but contracted it out for cost saving measures. The costs to run that operation would cost tens of thousands of additional tax payer money. Management salaries, worker wages,equipment purchases’s, mechanical repairs, fuel and who knows if buyer’s would want the finished product in the end and what price. This operation makes sense to contract it out or better yet, sell it, there can’t be that much profit in composting leaves.
