New rules for food scraps in garbage collection
Metro Vancouver is changing the way we manage our waste.
As of January 1, 2015 food waste must be separated from other garbage.
Already, 95% of Metro Vancouver residents living in detached homes separate food scraps from garbage using the Green Can program for curbside collection.
Now, businesses and multi-family residential buildings must develop a plan to separate food scraps from garbage by June 30, 2015.
