We're into the planting season and good dirt is essential for gardens. A good place to go for compost is Nor-Grow located at the Foothills Regional Landfill. It's located in Prince George at the end of Austin Rd. at Foothills Boulevard.

As always, do your research when determining what to mix in with your compost as that will depend upon what you are growing.composting.jpg

NorGrow is the bulk compost available at the Foothills Boulevard Regional Landfill. NorGrow is produced in accordance with the Provincial Organic Matter Recycling Regulation. This compost is classified as Class A compost as it meets the following criteria: the organic material is built into windrows which are periodically aerated and mixed for a period of 35 days. The windrows must maintain a temperature of 55° Celsius or greater for at least 15 days. After the final aeration and mixing, the compost is held in curing piles for a minimum of 21 days. Once the compost has finished curing, samples are taken, sent to an accredited laboratory and tested for pH, 11 metals, foreign matter and a number of other parameters. For more information on composting regulations, please visit: http://www.bclaws.ca/EPLibraries/bclaws_new/document/ID/freeside/18_2002

NorGrow bulk compost is produced from local yard and garden waste which is generated by both residential and commercial customers. Yard and garden waste is made up of grass clippings, leaves, shrubs, and branches. There are no bio-solids (residuals from the municipal wastewater treatment plant) in NorGrow.
