food waste

food waste rates

All food waste must be separated from regular garbage. The rate is calculated by the tonne or a $12.00 yard minimum.

Food bins will be located in the yard for drop off. Please, no plastic bags with the food waste, compostable bags are OK.

We also have a food waste program! You don’t have to clean the pail, we do it all for you. All you have to do is drop off the pail once it’s full and pick up a new clean pail. All you need to do to join is pay $25 for the initial pail.

Each time you drop it off, the fee is only $7 to exchange for the new pail. Contact us or drop in to get started with your composting program today!
