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.
