OrganicsOrganics Cart Content & Care

Sorting your organics material into your green cart will help our community achieve the 65 per cent waste diversion target. Reduce odours in your organic cart by rinsing it weekly.  You can layer newspaper, soiled cardboard, or leaves to help absorb moisture.  Sprinkling a small amount of baking soda or powdered lime can also help prevent odours.

Wonder what happens to your organics after pick up?

Your organic material is taken to an organics processing facility and converted into high quality compost for agriculture and other environmental uses.

To bag or not to bag?

It is best to place your organics loose in the cart. The only exception is pet waste, which must be bagged in an approved 100 per cent compostable bag.

Approved bags

The only approved bags are see-through 100 per cent compostable, marked by the manufacturer with both the U.S. and Canadian compostable logos. Residents can also use brown paper compostable bags in their green bins.

Note: No plastic bags, including thin grocery produce bags, can be put into the organics cart.
