Claystone Waste to become leading organics provider for Alberta municipalities

Construction set to begin on 20,000 tonne compost facility in Ryley, Alberta

BEAVER COUNTY, Alberta, Sept. 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Claystone Waste Ltd. announced today that it is beginning construction on a $4 million state-of-the-art aerated compost facility in Ryley, Alberta. The facility is slated to begin operations by summer 2023 and will process up to 20,000 tonnes of source separated organics including biodegradable supports such as wood fibre per year.

Claystone is constructing the facility to help Alberta municipalities and large-scale commercial enterprises meet their waste diversion targets. Once operational, Claystone will become a leading organics provider in the Edmonton metropolitan region as communities and businesses accelerate composting strategies to meet waste reduction targets.

“As the waste management industry evolves, Claystone is committed to evolving along with it,” says Pierre Breau, CEO of Claystone. “This means supporting the waste diversion goals of municipalities through the construction and operation of compost sorting facilities to process source separated organic waste.”

The advanced compost facility will be carefully designed and deploy industry best practices to control and manage odours.

“Through care in design and diligence in operation, odours can be controlled to levels that are not disruptive to the neighboring airshed,” says Breau. “Claystone is committed to be a good neighbour and responsive community partner. Part of being a good neighbour is mitigating issues before they occur through best-in-class odour management strategies.”  

Construction of the facility will create up to 40 jobs and contribute to ongoing employment growth in the region through permanent positions required for operations.
