TransAqua, the Greater Moncton Wastewater Commission, announced today that its 2015 compost sales and collection season will begin on Monday, May 4, at its compost facility located at 399 Delong Drive in Moncton.

Extended spring hours – May 4 to June 27, 2015:

Monday to Saturday: 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Sundays and holidays: Closed

Regular summer and fall hours – June 28 to October 30, 2015:

The public is advised that the compost site will be closed on the following holidays: Victoria Day (Monday, May 18); Canada Day (Wednesday, July 1); New Brunswick Day (Monday, Aug. 3); Labour Day (Monday, Sept. 7); and Thanksgiving (Monday, Oct. 12). The compost facility will close for the season to the public on Friday, Oct. 30, at 4 p.m.

Free compost is available to residents of Moncton, Dieppe and Riverview who wish to self-load compost into their own vehicles. Should residents prefer not to self-load, TransAqua staff will load vehicles (i.e. non-commercial trailer and/or pickup-type truck) for a flat fee of $10.

This year, the compost loading fee will be waived for members of the Canadian military and veterans, as well as current and retired members of the RCMP. (Proper ID must be shown.) “This is a token of our thanks and support for those who keep our community and country safe every day,” said Winston Pearce, Chair of the Greater Moncton Wastewater Commission. “Our compost is considered some of the best in Canada. We are happy to give back to the community. We’re looking forward to being part of Greater Moncton’s gardens and landscapes again this year.”

More information regarding the quality of TransAqua’s Type “AA” compost, as certified by the Bureau de normalisation du Québec (BNQ), can be found on TransAqua’s website at www.transaqua.ca/environment/compost. Detailed product information sheets are also available at the Delong Drive compost facility. Residents may also contact the compost facility by calling 387-7977. Please note that compost is not available at TransAqua’s wastewater treatment facility in Riverview.

TransAqua, the Greater Moncton Wastewater Commission, (www.transaqua.ca) was established in 1983 to support the wastewater collection and treatment needs of the Dieppe, Moncton and Riverview tri-community. Since then, it has developed a 31-kilometre collection network and a treatment facility to best deliver on this mandate. It has also become a leader in the reuse of bio-solids through the generation of type ‘AA’ compost (the highest grade currently achieved in Canada) as opposed to disposal in a landfill site. The organization is now positioning itself to further upgrade its facilities to provide an enhanced secondary treatment approach that will allow it to meet recently introduced mandatory federal regulations prior to the 2020 deadline.
