Davis Bay curbside organics collection continues. Currently, pick up is every Friday.
District staff will be developing a proposal for Council consideration on District-wide curbside organics collection based upon an analysis of the multi-year pilot project in Davis Bay. Updates will be posted on this page as work progresses.
Organic materials currently make up a large percentage of the residential waste being sent to the landfill. By diverting organics from the waste stream and composting this material, our community can reduce demands on local landfills and recover resources we can reuse. Current costs of processing Organic Waste are $80/tonne, while current Garbage processing costs $150/tonne. Diverting organics for recycling makes economic and environmental sense.
