Green Waste Recycling

Over the past decade, Bylands Nurseries Ltd. has created a composting program that helps eliminate large amounts of organic and green waste from entering local landfills. Our composting process lasts over 18 months and includes stringent temperature and moisture controlling practices. Our green waste is also turned and screened several times to ensure it is free of large particles and is properly pasteurized. Once this process is complete, it is naturally aged for 6 months to ensure it is of the best quality compost available. 

 

Here are some on site photos of our composting process.

 
This peat-free and organic composted material is eventually added back to our fields and into our potting mix. This material helps improve our soil quality, aids in aeration, increases soil nutrients and even assists in water retention capabilities.
