Organics Recycling & Compost Conference

September 26-28, 2016

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 26 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.

2016 National Conference proceedings are now online.
