I started Cleanit Greenit Composting because I knew we could help our environment on a business platform. So with the money I had that day (none) I got to work.
Luckily I am a biological engineer, an entrepreneur, and most of all, my team and our customers believe in what we do (….and I am a bit crazy). We took out loans, got some good advice, asked everyone we knew to help us.
Thanks everyone and to each of you individually I send a big hug from me! We would not still be here today without you. Thanks more than I can say. Anyway we are on our way! Each day is still tough and I still ask for help, but we have accomplished so much (see outputs).
We have our first licensed facility, we divert 20,000 tonnes of organic waste from landfill each year and we put at 20,000 cubic yards of “organic soil” high in organic matter and nutrients back into the earth that needs it, each year. In the process of doing our work, we create carbon offsets bringing balance to the world. We have told our story and worked with our community to get everyone changing the world with us. And I know my team goes home happy each day because we did something positive for our world.
Thanks again to all of you. Wherever your passions take you, I hope you will find the occasional moment to reflect on the positive change we made today and the positive changes we will continue to make tomorrow.

Did you know that 60% of waste going to landfills is organic?
Organic waste can be composted and made into life-sustaining soil.
Organic waste can be diverted away from your landfill
It can be processed by Cleanit Greenit and transformed into the nutrients and organic matter needed in our soil to grow plants that sustain life. At Cleanit Greenit, we divert organic waste to reduce the greenhouse gases that are harmful to the environment. This creates a carbon offset that helps balance the impact of emissions being generated elsewhere.
Harnessing the full value in organic waste
Over 15 years ago, through our sister company, Advanced Enviro Engineering Ltd., we recognized a significant problem with the amount of organic waste going to landfills. We wanted to do our part to protect the environment and use our experience to help businesses with waste management, and so, Cleanit Greenit Composting Systems was born.
Our Local, Convenient and Friendly Facility
We first built a composting facility in West Edmonton, and then focused on building a team dedicated to the highest level of service. We have a specialized process to help businesses manage organic waste, and at our convenient site, your waste is treated and transformed into a line of organic products.
