The First CityPod Composter Has Been Installed in a Canadian University

The University of British Columbia has a new, eco-friendly addition: a 15-foot stainless steel in-vessel composter called the CityPod.


Recently installed in the university’s new recycling room, the composter takes care of all food waste and compostable tableware from the school’s catering and food service operations. Food waste from all around the building is collected in 35-gallon bins lined with compostable bags, and those are shredded with a Bokashicycle Pulveriser before being tossed into the composter, where it’ll be processed in a short 6 weeks. Compost taken from the CityPod will be used to nourish the herbs and crops growing in the UBC rooftop garden.
