Regional District of Kitimat-Stikine Compost Facility

A feasibility study was conducted to determine technologies, approaches and costs for a new composting facility. It was determined that a compost facility would extend the RDKS landfill’s lifespan considerably while reducing GHG emissions and BOD content in landfill leachate. Morrison Hershfield was then brough on as part of the design-build team responsible for the detailed design and construction QA/QC. (Terrace, BC)


Environment Canada Guidance Document on Organics Processing

We were part of the team that contributed to the technical guidance document which identifies and addresses the various design, operational, performance and financial factors that should be taken into consideration during the planning and developing organics processing facilities. (Whistler, BC)


Compost Facility Best Management Practices Study

To progress Metro Vancouver’s waste management goal of diverting 80% of the region’s waste from disposal by 2020, a review of their compost facility practices was completed to compare best practices and determine improvements for the region. (Vancouver, BC)

Organic Waste Transfer and Processing

Organic Waste Transfer and Processing

Communities are setting more and more aggressive targets for waste management and diversion. In particular, the importance of green waste diversion has been solidified by provincial goals. It is now up to regional districts and municipalities to find solutions to maximize the revenue from diverting and processing green waste. We will provide you with options for available waste technologies, and site feasibility approaches for developing your organics facility.

We are recognized experts in composting and organics waste management, including anaerobic digestion, and are often retained by engineers and P3 teams for facility development projects.
