Regional Organics Facility
On November 14, 2019, the Comox Strathcona Waste Management (CSWM) Board made the decision to build a regional organics composting facility at the Campbell River Waste Management Centre – Block J (6300 Argonaut Road), with a transfer station to be located at the Comox Valley Waste Management Centre.
This composting facility will be operational in fall 2021 and will enable curbside organics collection for over 30,000 single-family dwellings in Campbell River, Comox, Cumberland and Courtenay. This household organic material will be transformed into finished compost for agriculture and landscaping.
The public will have opportunities to learn more about the new facility and provide input to guide its design and operations.
