Notwaste Outdoor Centre Inc. 

NOC Inc. is a family-based business based in Quinte West, Ontario. Officially launched on October 1, 2019, the owner/operator made the outdoor wellness centre a reality with the completion of the outdoor sauna. Make wellness your daily goal!

All of the services are completed following the principle of “zero-waste”. Mr Bongard’s graduate degree in environmental science ensures all forest management practices are completed in a sustainable manner. These means vegetables and fruits are grown onsite and the environment is treated with respect. NOC is not a waste of your time and money if you believe getting back to the basics and improving your mental and physical well-being are important to you.


What are the services?

  • The banya (aka outdoor sauna with a twist) is the primary wellness/experiential service and is unique in Eastern Ontario.
  • The forest therapy walks follow a wellness theme. A minimum of 4 people is required for one to be conducted.
  • The private clay tennis can be rented out for amateurs and professionals.
  • In addition, selected wood products can be custom-made to your specifications.

All of these experiential options fall under the Notwaste umbrella of services and are located on 27 acres of groomed-trails just outside the city of Trenton, Ontario.


In January 2021, the largest Canadian paid circulation magazine for the mature market “ZOOMER” officially acknowledged the NOC banya as a wellness staycation in Eastern Canada.

“If you’d rather stay on dry land but still want to feel like you’ve gone to a spa across the sea, Ontario’s Bay of Quinte is home to the Notwaste banya experience.” This was the “ZOOMER” professional suggestion.
