Waste diversion for businesses and organizations

Between now and 2020, we're making changes to the way businesses and organizations handle their waste. A series of rate and bylaw changes will require recycling and diversion of food and yard waste from landfills. Here are some upcoming changes:

November 2016
Businesses and organizations must recycle paper, cardboard and certain other materials.

October 2017
Waste & Recycling Services is hosting information and networking sessions to learn more about the upcoming food and yard waste bylaw requirement.

There are two options to choose from. Please register for one event:

6:00-8:00 p.m.

October 31
9:00-11:00 a.m.

November 2017
