Metro Vancouver will be establishing a disposal ban on organic materials for both residents and businesses in 2015 – an important step in implementing the region’s Solid Waste Management Plan
. The plan was developed through extensive public consultation and approved by the BC Government in July 2011.
Organic material comprises of about 30% (over 250,000 tonnes) of total garbage collected. Diverting this material from the landfill will help to increase our recycling rate from 55% to 80% in 2015.
For the most up-to-date information on the ban, visit the Metro Vancouver
website, or the City of Vancouver
website to view your options if your building does not currently have organics collection.
