Regional Organics

A new regional composting facility will be built at the Campbell River Waste Management Centre, enabling curbside organics collection for over 30,000 single-family dwellings in Campbell River, Comox, Cumberland and Courtenay. This household organic material will be transformed into finished compost for agriculture and landscaping.

A What We Heard report summarizing input received during the consultation process has been shared with the Comox Strathcona Waste Management (CSWM) Board and with proponents to inform the facility design and operations.

Planning is now underway for the composting facility. Once the design is finalized construction will begin, enabling the phased introduction of organics collection expected over the summer to fall of 2022, with the facility fully operational by fall 2022.
