We recently set up a moulder to produce millwork and quickly started drowning in sawdust. Can someone steer us to a company that will take our waste in the southern Indiana area? I don't care to sell it - just get it off of the property. We have a great deal of walnut and exotic waste, so farmers do not want it for bedding. We need a company that is willing to set a trailer that we can fill and they will come and pick it up once it is loaded.

From contributor G:
Waste Management would certainly handle it for a fee. They provide drop off containers of all sizes. Otherwise there is a landscape/composting operation between Indy and Martinsville on 37 that might be happy to see it. Sufficient composting will render the juglone in walnut harmless. Possibly a sawing and kiln operation that fuels its kiln steam generator with cutting scrap could add it to their burn.
The two composting landfills around here want to charge you to dump (you haul) as much as they charge to sell you a load, all at their facility - very expensive. Unfortunately, it is cheaper to landfill. Though I'm betting the landfill segregates it and uses it for spill control, etc. Most facilities use it for heat and/or co-generation - free power.
