Organic Matter Recycling Regulations

What was this engagement about?

The Organic Matter Recycling Regulation of B.C. (OMRR) governs the production, quality and land application of certain types of organic matter. It provides clear guidance for local governments, as well as compost and bio-solids producers, on how to use organic material while protecting soil quality and drinking water sources.
On April 4, 2016 the Province announced it was undertaking a review of the Organic Matter Recycling Regulation to ensure that it remains protective of both human health and the environment.  On October 3, 2016, a policy intentions paper was released inviting public feedback on proposed new and revised policies.


How can my contribution make a difference?

The Province invited comments on the information outlined in the Organic Matter Recycling Regulation Policy Intentions Paper. Comments were accepted by email or mail by December 2, 2016. All responses received during the engagement will be considered by the Ministry of Environment in preparing the proposed revisions to the regulation.
