Diagram of Organics Composting Facility. Organics are transferred from the Comox Valley Waste Management Centre to the facility in Campbell River where it undergoes an initial composting process. There are several measures in place to control odours such as the bio-filter shown to the right. The compost made is able to be used in industrial pursuits like farming. In the maturation stage the compost becomes more stable. Microorganisms break down the material to generate heat to kill pathogens or weed seeds.
