Garbage & Recycling

Green Bin Organics Program

Green BinThe Green Bin Program collects organic waste (fruit and vegetables scraps, paper towels, coffee grinds, etc.) and turns it into compost.

About 44% (by weight) of your household garbage is organic material - material that can be processed into compost for use on farms, parklands and gardens instead of being sent to landfill.

The Green Bin Program currently services 460,000 single-family households. The Green Bin Program is now being rolled out to apartments, condos and co-op buildings receiving City collection.
