What happens to the compost?

Off-site composting

Organics are picked up by an external service provider for off-site composting. Visit GFL Environment Inc's website for more info on their composting process.

On-site composting

We're offering small-scale composters to any groups or departments on campus who'd like to process organic waste and use the compost! Get in touch at zerowaste@concordia.ca.
