25th Annual National
Organics Recycling & Compost Conference

September 16-18, 2015
The Crowne Plaza Gatineau-Ottawa
Gatineau, Québec

Organic residuals are the largest component of the waste stream. Their return to the earth through composting and anaerobic digestion is also fundamental to soil health and vitality.

For the past 25 years, the national organics recycling and compost conference of The Compost Council of Canada has served as the forum advocating and documenting the advances in programs, regulations, research, technology and markets to establish and sustain the organics recycling infrastructure across Canada.

On the occasion of both the 25th Anniversary of our national conference as well as the International Year of Soils, The Compost Council of Canada is inviting proposals for presentations, workshops and posters addressing advances in organics recycling and end-use markets.
