The CRD is committed to the diversion of kitchen scraps from Hartland landfill to maximize the landfill life and facilitate the responsible recovery of resources from this material stream. We're working towards both short and long-term processing solutions.
Everyday we produce a pile of fruit and vegetable peelings, cores, egg shells and tea bags that should not end up in the trash. Composting of our food waste makes ecological sense.
In 2012 the CRD Board approved the regional kitchen scraps strategy, which implements the diversion of kitchen scraps from garbage in a phased approach, with a full ban on kitchen scraps disposal as garbage at Hartland landfill as of January of 2015.
