In January 2015, Metro Vancouver introduced a ban on organics at local landfills.  Households and business alike must divert their organics from the garbage and have a recycling program in place.  That means all food scraps – raw and cooked food, plate scrapings, leftovers, expired food, meat, bones, and dairy products – need to be recycled.

In some case, if Organics are found in the garbage stream, fines will be issued.  Did you know that organic food scraps make about 30% of most businesses garbage?  Food isn’t garbage – It makes sense to recycle organics!
