Welcome to Fraser Richmond Soil & Fibre
Welcome to Fraser Richmond Soil & Fibre. A wholly owned subsidiary of Harvest since 2009, this is one North America’s largest permitted composting facilities for food scrap and yard waste. While most operations compost in windrows, Frasr Richmond uses a proprietary covered aerated static pile (CASP) system. Located near Vancouver, B.C., this operation processes over 240,000 tonnes of material annually, and has recycled over 3 million tonnes since the company was launched in 1993.
