Kamloops is just in the early stages of providing consumer composting that are currently going on in other cities in Canada. Marcia Dick, a waste management specialist and a person behind Waste Naught BC a waste management consultation company has started Compost Kamloops in hopes to reduce unnecessary waste particularly among businesses within Kamloops. One of the first clients for Compost Kamloops has been the British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC). Compost Kamloops utilizes about 450 liters of compost material a week from BCLC that they work with in Kamloops community gardens. Marcia has hopes to add clients here in Kamloops to justify scaling up the operation. Aside from the creating soil from food scraps that would otherwise go into our dumps composting could be an alternative source of heat for green houses or other sources of alterative energy.
