Cape Breton Regional Municipality (CBRM)

As part of their overall long-term waste management plan, the Cape Breton
Regional Municipality (CBRM) collects their organic waste generated in the
community separately in order to process it in their newly built centralized
composting facility.
Suitably prepared organic material is placed in the phase 1 tunnels which have
a capacity of approximately 440 m3.The phase 1 process is designed in order
to provide 9 to 11 calendar days of stabilization. The phase 2 tunnels, which
have 20-30% more capacity than the phase 1 tunnels, are designed to take
advantage of the volume reduction which will occur as the composting
process proceeds. They are designed to provide a further 17 to 20 calendar
days of stabilization.
