The city of Montreal is about to get a whole lot greener. Mayor Denis Coderre announced today that there’s a new food waste collection strategy that’s going to be implemented across Montreal by 2019, and it involved compost bins.
Bins will soon be distributed to Montrealers for food waste and the city will extend the collection of door-to-door food waste to every building with 8 units or less. Beginning in 2016, all districts of Montreal will gradually implement the new plan. In the 9 boroughs where waste collection is only once a week, a new collection will be added for just food waste, and in the other boroughs where it’s twice a week, one of them will become a compost only collection.
