Food Waste Collection
Council has approved a new residential waste collection program as a way to reduce the amount of waste being sent to the landfill.

The new program includes the following:
- weekly containerized food waste collection (residents will be provided a specific 57 litre container for food waste)
- bi-weekly containerized garbage collection (residents will be provided a specific 240 litre container for garbage)
- bi-weekly recycling collection will continue through the current contractor
The decision to divert food waste is based on the RDNO’s Solid Waste Management Plan recommendations, where approximately 30% of the waste stream is made up of organic material.
