● All wet blue trimmings of suitable size are sold. They are then stained, hand-oiled and softened by
flexing, and made into basic leathergoods.
● All of the trimmings from pickled skins are sold and used as fish food.
● Fleshings, which are small in volume, and the remaining tannery scrap leather from trimming and
buffing, are mixed with dewatered sludge from effluent treatment and deposited to landfill.
● Trials are taking place to compost pickled scrap by mixing with sawdust, rice waste and a composting
agent
