Claystone Announces Ryley Composting Facility

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

A new $4 million state-of-the-art composting facility in Ryley, Alberta, will allow Claystone to process 20,000 tonnes of organic waste per year from 2023 onwards.

BEAVER COUNTY, Alberta – September 19, 2022: 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 amendments such as wood fibre per year.

Claystone is constructing the facility to help Alberta municipalities meet their waste diversion targets. Once operational, Claystone will become a leading organics provider in the Edmonton metropolitan region as communities 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 neighbouring 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 40 jobs. For more information on the Claystone compost facility visit: Claystone.com/compost.
