Yup. Ask the supplier for nutritional and pathogen test results. Scan and post them on here. IF they do not provide them... run.

Hi, our land fill here grinds up the organic material that all the maintenance company's bring in, the land fill sold 90, thousand yards of it last by mid season, we have a lot of golf courses, I guess it must work, but i think they have the poopost to, kind of smelly though to put on residentials,

The worry I would have with a landfill's ground compost material is WHAT exactly did the grind? AND what EXACTLY went through the grinder for the batch you hauled off!! What happens when a jug of Glyphosphate ended up in the bag of grass clippings and gets ground in with the batch you got? Or better yet, a shot of attrazine. The golf industry is full of stories of guys who got something as innocent as top dressing sand that was river washed right after the seasonal attrazine apps and the end result was dead grass. A bag or two of icemelt that got left in the bottom of the truck they dumped the grass into would be all it would take to ruin YOUR reputation.

O these compost rows are 200 yards long around 12 feet high, they have about 8 rows, each one at a different stag in there process, O they turn them at certain times, and keep grinding until they get to product they need,O they do have a nutrient certification sheet on whats in the compost.

Sprout test the compost before you use it...?

Not sure what is in it? Make you you don't eat it then. You might end up like this kid. (ok not related but freaking hilarious!) But experiencing it might feel like this?

"Was that mushroom compost you just ate?"
