Guelph Wellington Organix Waste Processing Facility | AIM Environmental Group

The City of Guelph initiated the development of Guelph’s state of the art Organic Waste Processing Facility (OWPF) in 2009. As the OMR (Operate/Maintain/Repair) provider, AIM partnered with Maple Reinders Constructors to develop the process flow, facility layout, and provision of key pre and post-process systems for the facility. Processing Guelph’s source-separated organics (SSO) into clean, nutrient-rich compost, the OWPF has been operating since 2011. Through the use of In-Vessel Aerated Static Pile composting, the facility processes over 30, 000 tonnes of incoming SSO into 6,000 tonnes of valuable Category A compost annually. Today the facility receives SSO from the City of Guelph and the Region of Waterloo, serving approximately 622, 036 residents.



“Wellington Organix Inc currently provides source-separated organics processing services with the City of Guelph’s organic waste processing facility located in the city’s Waste Resource Innovation Centre.

Mark Jared of Wellington Organix Inc. and his team have proven to be very knowledgeable and professional in delivering high-quality services.

Mark and his team have fostered a great business partnership with the City of Guelph, and we look forward to continuing this in the coming years.”
