This week on Terra Informa, we talk trash! The Edmonton Compost Facility shut down on May 29, 2019 after it was discovered the roof was no longer structurally safe. As a tribute, we wanted to play a story about the facility’s launch from 2009 but… it has mysteriously disappeared….

So instead we revisit a story from 2017 where Terra Informers Amanda Rooney and Tasmia Nishat took a tour of the Edmonton Waste Management Centre. The City offers free tours of its world-renowned garbage collection facility every Friday at 9:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Let’s hear all about it!
