In January 2015, a landfill ban on kitchen scraps (food waste and soiled paper products) was implemented. Kitchen scraps collection is conducted by a combination of municipal programs and private subscription services.
As with multi-family buildings, waste collection services for commercial buildings is supplied by the private sector. If you are business located within a commercial building, we recommend connecting with the building manager regarding organics collection and diversion. See our Kitchen Scraps webpage for more information.
