||Green Cart pilot - What's new?|
Since green carts rolled out across four communities in March 2012, we've collected 1.9 million kilograms of food and yard waste, and seen more than a 40 per cent reduction in garbage in those communities.
Later this spring, we will bring recommendations to Council for a city-wide program. In the meantime, pilot participants may continue to use their green carts for all their food and yard waste.
