By participating in an organic program, you can drastically increase your waste diversion rate and contribute to a greening environment.

There are two types of organic collection utilizing two different sizes of totes.

Compost Recycling Program & Organic Recycling Program

To collect post consumer food products, which include cooked meats, coffee grinds and paper towel, we use 32 gallon totes. These totes are exchanged on the pick up day with clean totes. The material collected will be sent to compost facilities in Ontario.

To collect vegetable trimmings, breads, cakes and dairy products, we use 95 gallon totes. These totes are emptied on site with the material being used as animal feed.
