The Columbia Shuswap Regional District of British Columbia plans to build a compost facility at the Revelstoke Landfill. When it’s complete next year, it will begin accepting commercial food waste. The facility has the capacity to expand to residential food waste in the future. The new facility will first focus on collecting food waste from restaurants, hotels and other commercial businesses, and they expect to begin collection in 2019 when the facility is complete. Construction will begin this year and will likely finish in the fall.

The building will use an aeration system that will promote conversion into compost, then the compost will be sold to the public. The district’s intent is to make a Class A compost that it would then be able to sell back to the public.
