Composting Facilities

A compost facility allows oxygen-rich conditions to decompose organic matter. Once the organic matter is broken down, the result is a rich, dark soil conditioner that:

  • results from the biological decomposition and stabilization of organic materials under warm, oxygen-rich conditions;
  • is beneficial to plant growth; and
  • is sanitized to a degree that protects human health.

The Ministry of Environment conducted a survey on the potential development of an environmental code chapter for compost facilities.
