Food Waste Collection

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. 

To view the implementation brochure click here.

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.
