We are setup for the food scrap program.
Effective January 1, 2015 the kitchen scraps will be banned from Hartland landfill. The Regional Kitchen Scraps Strategy has been developed by the Capital Regional District (CRD) to promote sustainable waste management for the region. As a result, all residences and businesses in the region are required to segregate food scraps from your regular garbage. This will require a separate bin one for garbage and one for kitchen scraps you can put out both bins beside each other on your usual garbage day and there is no extra cost for this collection service. You can use your own bin/can or we can supply one to you.
Please keep the weight of in your bin to a maximum 25 lbs. or you can use several tied up compostable bags in your container in order to comply with WCB weight lifting requirements.
We have bins/cans available in this size that you can purchase for $35.00 each or you can obtain a bin/can direct at Canadian Tire or Home Depot if you prefer. Bin/ Can rental of $5.00 per month is another option too.
Certified compostable bags are accepted. Please ensure that you do not use biodegradable or regular plastic bags as they are not accepted in the program. When shopping for compostable bags look for this symbol certified compostable logo.
Compostable bags can be purchased at Costco, Canadian Tire, Country Grocer, London Drugs, Rona, Thrifty Foods, and Walmart etc.
