Four days of Canadian compost tours, presentations and tradeshows are nearly upon us, as the 24th Annual National Compost Conference returns in September 2014 to beautiful East Coast Canada in Halifax.

Billed as Feed the Soil Compost, this marquee event kicks off Sunday, September 21, running until Wednesday, September 24. The Westin Nova Scotian Hotel event is the perfect forum for the latest in information, networks and contacts in Canada’s organics recycling industry.


“Your days will be filled with tours, presentations and the opportunity to meet the leading suppliers of our industry. Our evenings will complete this premier event with extensive opportunities for networking and enjoying local fare and flavours,” says the Compost Council of Canada, a co-host of the event with the Compost Quality Alliance.  

Co-sponsored by Solid Waste and Recycling magazine, this event covers an array of organics issues, from anaerobic digestion to regulation, and all the latest technological updates.
