District of Saanich
Dave McAra has worked at the District of Saanich for over 25 years, the last 12 years in the dual role of Manager of Solid Waste Services and Fleet Centre. Starting April 2014, 31,300 Saanich residential garbage customers were asked to divert kitchen scraps, food leftovers, and food-soiled paper products from their household garbage, for pick-up in a separate organics recycling cart. Dave will share with us his experience and lessons learned from this new program. 

CH2M Hill
Scott Gamble has over twenty years of experience designing, operating and managing composting and other solid waste facilities. He specializes in organic waste management and is recognized for his knowledge in composting system design and operations. Odour management, product consistency and a good understanding of regulatory requirements are some of the top concerns for any compost operation. Scott will share with us how these can be addressed through Best Management Practices and following the Environment Canada Technical Document on MSW Organics Processing that CH2M Hill helped to develop. Scott is the past Chairman of the Composting Council of Canada.
