The Edmonton Waste Management Centre (EWMC) is a unique collection of advanced waste processing and research facilities where waste is transformed into useful resources.
- The Centre is 233 hectares in size which is equivalent to almost five West Edmonton Malls.
- The combined area of all the buildings on site is 80,000 square metres, with the Edmonton Composting Facility itself occupying space equivalent to almost five football fields.
- On average, 4,500 trucks bearing 9,800 tonnes of material cross the scale every week.
- Over 15,000 students, teachers and adults tour the Centre each year.
