Are you hiding something in your garbage?
(On Vancouver Island and on the lower mainland)

One third of the garbage in our landfills is organic material (food and yard waste). That material does not need to go to the landfill; it can be composted and put to better use. And did you know? Metro Vancouver, along with your municipality, will ban organic materials (including food) from your garbage container in 2015. Recycling food scraps, food-soiled paper and yard waste is easy to do. Why wait? Contact Waste Management (WM) to learn more about our collection program.

  • Right size your garbage container! Contact WM to conduct a waste assessment and tailor a collection program that fits your specific composting and recycling needs.
  • WM has this one! WM has the largest organics collection program in the lower mainland.
  • Be green before the ban! Get into compliance (avoid a potential fine) with an affordable organics collection program for your business or apartment complex.
  • Help our farmers! Recycling food waste can generate renewable energy and be turned into a fertilizer to benefit Canadian farmers.
Don't slip on a banana peel, contact Waste Management to learn how you can implement a new organics collection program.
