Odour from a Compost Facility
Primary inquiry: A citizen’s group reported that putrid smells were occurring daily from a local commercial compost facility located in a suburban area of the city. The local public health agency was contacted to provide information to answer the following questions:
- What types of contaminants are potentially emitted in air from commercial composting facilities?
- What causes odours associated with the composting process?
- Are there health impacts to nearby residents from exposure to compost emissions?
- How can the odour from compost facilities be minimized?
