Posted by: Elizabeth Linton on 9/24/03 Title: Curbside Compost Pick-up in Canada
Postnum: 21 EntryID:59
I am looking for the names of the municipalities in Canada that have organic wastes picked-up at the curb for centralized composting purposes. If anyone knows of any such municipalities or where I can find a comprehensive list of the communities in Canada where this occurs, please pass this information on.

The PEI government has instituted a comprehensive composting program that includes province wide curbside compost pick-up.

Many municipalities have curb-side composting programs. Toronto, Hamilton, Oshawa, Ottawa, Markham are some of the municipalities I know of.

I don't think you'd be able to get a great big list of all the communities that do this...there are actually lots now (YEAH:)) You'd be best off just looking at the city websites, most have an operations link, where public services are explained and will say what kind of waste services are there.

Nova Scotia has a very comprehensive curbside collection of organic waste. Contact the Department of Environment and Labour. NS's collection program allowed them to reduce waste by 50% by 2000, the only province to do so YEAH Maritimes!!!

Guelph Ontario used to have one for about 5 years, Olds in Alberta has a strong program, Ottawa had a trial curbside composting system in 5 areas, Markham has one and is going all over the city by 2006, maybe check out www.ccc.org, I think its Composting Canada
