Getting Greener: The Organics Disposal Ban

February 16, 2015

MetroVancouverRollEgg.jpg​As you likely know, the Metro-Vancouver-wide effort to keep food scraps out of the landfill is now in full gear. All schools and school district facilities are expected to fully comply with Metro Vancouver's organic waste disposal ban. To do this, we are preparing to roll out new, compartmentalized receptacles in all our schools later this spring. “Organics only”, “Waste Only”, “Mixed Recyclables” and “Paper” will each receive a designated bin to simplify sorting.

Located in hallways and high traffic areas, the receptacles will allow for staff, students and even visitors to send waste in the right direction.
