Kitimat receives $910,000 for new composting facility

KITIMAT, B.C. — Residents of Kitimat will soon have a central option for turning food and yard waste into better soil.

The District of Kitimat is on tap to receive more than $910,000 through the Organics Infrastructure Program for a new composting facility, according to a news release.

The program is a joint venture between the governments of British Columbia and Canada.

The facility will have the capacity to process 1,500 tonnes of organic waste per year, reducing approximately 2,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions per year.

Organic waste represents 40 per cent of municipal landfill material and generates 3.5 per cent of the province’s greenhouse gas emissions, states the release.

“Investing in better infrastructure for waste management will divert organic waste from landfills and turn it into clean and useful compost,” said Steven Guilbeault, federal minister of environment and climate change, in the release.

“This is a great example of leadership from the Kitimat community.”
