  • Organics Disposal Ban

    Food will be separated from regular garbage. A third of the garbage in our landfills is organic material that could have been composted and used to enhance the environment. Metro Vancouver, along with your municipality, manages the region’s waste and will ban organic materials (including food) from waste facilities starting in 2015.
