TransAqua 2019 Compost Facility Open House

RIVERVIEW, N.B. – TransAqua, the Greater Moncton Wastewater Commission,
announced today that its 2019 Compost Facility Community Open House will be held
on May 11, 2019 from 8am to 4pm at its compost facility located at 399 Delong Drive
in Moncton.

Come help us celebrate International Compost Awareness Week (May 5 to 11) by
joining us for a facility tour to learn how compost is made, a BBQ (from 11am to
2pm) and free compost for those residents of Moncton, Dieppe and Riverview who
wish to self-load compost into their own vehicles/containers. 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 $5 per bucket full (small tractor).

TransAqua’s compost is designated as type A or AA by BNQ (Bureau de
Normalisation du Québec) or Category A by CQA –managed by Compost Council of
Canada, which are the highest compost certifiable quality standards achievable 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 compost can be found on
TransAqua’s website at www.transaqua.ca/environment/compost. Please sign up to
receive updates and information from TransAqua. 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 biosolids through the generation of high
quality compost as opposed to disposal in a landfill site.
