You Asked for it, and We’re Going to Deliver
Regina, you’ve been asking and we’re ready to deliver… or should we say pick up. Ha! Beginning May 1, 2016 our team of Waste Diversion Specialists will be rolling out (no pun intended) our curbside organic collection program. We’ve been composting leaf and yard waste through the City of Regina depot programs for years and are now ready to expand our operation and provide the City of Regina residents and business with an opportunity to live and act a little greener. Our organic collections program is specifically designed to meet the needs of our growing city. Much like your backyard compost bin but a bit bigger and a whole lot better.
We’ll Equip You With Everything You Need
You will be provided with a kitchen food waste container, a 4-gallon curbside bin and one years’ supply of compostable bags/liners for your bins.
Put your kitchen waste container in a convenient place. Some people keep it on their kitchen counter while others prefer under the sink. Place your compostable liner bag (supplied) inside the container. Empty your food waste directly in to the liner bag. When the liner bag is full tie it closed and place it in your curbside pick up bin.
The 4-gallon curbside green bin should be used to store food waste from the kitchen container and will be set on your front step for weekly collection. Store the curbside green bin in a convenient location. You will line the bin with the liner provided. The liner/bag will be collected from your bin on pick up day. If you have an extra bag/liner full of food waste please leave that beside curbside container. On collection day lock the lid and place the green bin and its contents on the step/front door area by 8:00 am.
Place These Items in Your Green Bin
- Food waste – All fruit and vegetable waste, bread, rice, pasta, coffee grounds, filters, tea bags and eggshells.
- Leaf and yard waste – Please leave leaf and yard waste in brown paper bags along side your green bin for pick up.
- Paper Fibre – Paper egg cartons, paper bags, compostable (must be marked compostable) cups, plates, napkins, cutlery, newspaper, etc.
- Other compostable materials – house plants, flowers, sawdust, and wood shavings, dryer lint, and vacuum contents.
Do Not Place These Items in Your Green Bin
Aluminum foil, baby wipes, bandages, clothing/textiles, coffee cups (unless marked compostable), diapers, hygiene products, glass, gum, kitty litter, metal, oils, pet waste, plastic bags, or twist ties
In nature, nothing is wasted. Everything is returned to the soil through nature’s recycling process — composting.
Compost is the end product of a natural process that reduces organic waste to humus. Compost contains plant nutrients, soil microbes and organic fibre for building healthy soil. Up to 30% of the garbage produced in Regina households is leaf and yard waste that can be diverted from the landfill and recycled into nutrient-rich compost. Imagine one third less waste to lug to the curb for collection!
Composting at PV
PV Waste Solutions accepts organic food waste (see list below) , leaf and yard waste and clean biodegradable waste from construction and demolition operations from commercial haulers and residents. All organic materials are piled into long rows (windrows) and composted at our soil bio-remediation and compost site. These windrows reach temperatures of 55 degrees celsius and higher (PFRP Process) and are turned periodically to improve porosity and oxygen content, mix in or remove moisture, and redistribute cooler and hotter portions of the pile.

Our finished compost is tested on a regular basis and we have consistently produced Category “A” Compost. We are members of both the Compost Council of Canada and the Compost Quality Alliance. Our compost can be added to your yards and gardens and provide a number of environmental benefits. See “Benefits of Composting” below to learn why composting our organic waste is a vital component of preserving and protecting our environment.
PV Waste Solutions accepts organic food waste from restaurants ,grocery stores, offices and City of Regina residents through our curbside collection program. We also accept yard waste from local landscaping service providers, City of Regina Leaf and Yard Waste Depots, as well as construction and demolition waste from commercial haulers. Acceptable organic waste materials can be found in the list of residential materials below. Construction and demolition materials that may be accepted for composting include clean wood waste, wood pallets, drywall ,and cardboard.
Residential Leaf & Yard Waste
Yard waste from the City of Regina depot program.
PV has cultivated several relationships over the years to ensure leaf and yard waste is diverted from the landfill and recycled at our compost facility. We partner with the City of Regina to compost the yard waste collected from the City’s Leaf & Yard Waste Depots each spring and fall. We also partner with local companies and community gardens wishing to divert their organic waste. Recently we have started working with grocery stores and restaurants helping them reach their sustainability goals.
We also accept residential leaf and yard waste at our Bioremediation & Compost Facility located a few kilometers west of Regina at the BEST Landfarm. Choosing PV will allow you to avoid the long line-up at the landfill and ensure that your yard waste will be used to create something that benefits our environment — compost!

PV’s large scale vermicomposting unit. We’re worm farmers!
“Vermi” is the Latin word for worm. Vermicomposting is the process of composting food scraps using red wiggler worms that can eat and expel close to their own weight every day. The worms work in partnership with fungi, bacteria and other microbes to breakdown food scraps into worm casting or worm “poop” – the most nutrient-rich compost there is!
PV Waste Solutions has recently purchased a large scale vermicomposting unit and will begin composting food waste and farming red wiggler worms in the New Year.
PV also operates our Clean Earth Warriors program to work with Regina schools to bring small scale vermicompost bins into classrooms. Check out the In Our Community – Environmental Education page to find out more about this program.
Benefits of Composting
- Decreases waste sent to landfills
- Organic waste breaks down in an anaerobic environment (no oxygen) in a landfill. The organic waste turns into a toxic liquid – “leachate” – that leaks down though the landfill potentially polluting nearby water waters and releases methane (a dangerous greenhouse gas) into the atmosphere.
- Prevents soil erosion
- Soil is held together by its organic matter. Soil with high organic content is less likely to be impacted by water run-off or wind erosion.
- Increases soil’s ability to hold water
- Compost absorbs water better than soil and can hold almost twice its weight in water.
- Mitigates the risk of drought or floods
- By increasing the amount of water that can be held in the soil, compost can help to mitigate the risk of drought and floods.
- Increases microbes, nutrients and minerals in the soil
- Compost promotes healthy microbial activity in soil, making valuable nutrients and minerals available to plant roots.
- Improves soil structure
- By adding organic matter to the soil, compost improves the structure of the soil. Compost will helps avoid soil compaction by breaking up heavy clay soils and binding sandy soils.
- Restores soil food web
- Compost increases biological activity in the soil and restores the soil food web by attracting beneficial microbes, bacteria, earthworms, insects and birds.
- Neutralizes soil toxins and reduces use of chemical fertilizers
- Compost locks toxins in the soil in a form unable to harm plants and can assist in repairing soils contaminated with chemical fertilizers and pesticides.
- Stimulates plant growth
- By increasing the water-holding capacity, organic matter and biological activity of soil, compost suppresses diseases, pests and weeds, and increases the ability of plants to take up nutrients and minerals.
Our commitment to fostering a sustainable environment includes restoring our soils.
PV Waste Solutions operates a soil bio-remediation facility located 6 km west of Regina at the BEST Land Farm. Our facility is authorized through permits from Saskatchewan Environment to accept and treat contaminated soils in specially designed treatment cells. The mission of PV Waste Solutions is to serve the industry in Regina and surrounding areas through a locally owned and operated company that provides value and efficiency in the remediation of all impacted soils.
Soil Remediation Treatment Technology
We utilize landfarming and bioremediation treatment technologies to remediate hydrocarbon contaminated soils delivered to our facility. Our treatment process uses naturally occurring microorganisms (fungi and/or bacteria) to break down, or degrade, hazardous substances into less toxic or nontoxic substances. Soil normally contains large numbers of diverse microorganisms including bacteria, algae, fungi, protozoa, and actinomycetes. Microorganisms eat and digest organic substances for nutrients and energy. In chemical terms, “organic” compounds are those that contain carbon and hydrogen atoms. Certain microorganisms can digest organic substances such as fuels or solvents and break down the organic contaminants into harmless products — mainly carbon dioxide and water.
Residential Bin Rentals
We have specially designed driveway-friendly bins that make your renovation or clean up easy!
Our team prides itself on going the extra mile. Need advice? Not sure what size to rent or where you can place the bin? Check out our suggestions below or call us and we’ll go through bin sizes and placement with you. We will make sure your disposal bin is exactly what you need.

Clean Earth Warriors Program Brings Vermicomposting to Regina Classrooms
Our first program is focused on creating Clean Earth Warriors in our schools by partnering with teachers and classrooms in Regina schools to compost organic waste (food scraps) from school lunches. In elementary school we learn about the basic principles of biodegradability, soil science, resource conservation, and recycling, as well as how nature recycles via the life cycle: life, death, decay, and re-birth. Therefore, integrating a compost bin into lessons is a great hands-on way to teach children not only about life cycles, but also about waste, recycling and landfills. It also teaches children how they can make a smaller footprint on our Earth. Hopefully they will also bring this knowledge home and teach their parents how easy it is to compost.
PV Waste Solutions will provide everything you need to stop sending food scraps to the landfill and start composting it in your classroom. We will visit your class and provide a vermicompost bin with bedding materials and worms, a container to collect lunch food scraps, a garden spade to dig around in your bin, a brief presentation for your students, educational composting colouring books, and full instructions for you. We will also provide follow-up in case you need help with your bin. We hope this program will encourage students to recycle their organic waste and become Clean Earth Warriors! We also hope to encourage healthy eating by asking kids to bring fruits and vegetables for snack-time and lunch.In addition, all of this comes at no cost to the teacher. Our classroom program is funded through our scrap metal recycling partners which include individuals and business like Kramer Ltd, Industrial Parts, K&D Truck Parts and Jay’s Moving and Storage. You can also donate to our Clean Earth Warrior Program by simply dropping off your unwanted household scrap metal at our facility. Not only are you contributing to our Clean Earth Warrior Program your also diverting waste from the landfill.
Classrooms in the following schools have received vermicompost bins:
- Grant Road School
- WH Ford (2 Classrooms)
- St. Jerome
- McVeety School
- Rosemont School
- W.F Ready
- Souls Harbour Rescue Mission Facilities
