What happens to the compost?

Off-site composting

Organics are picked up by an external service provider for off-site composting. See Matrec's website for more info on their composting process.

On-site composting

We had our first consultation on December 2nd, 2016. You can review the PPT presentation and read up on the minutes from the meeting.
