Organic Waste Diversion Strategy

In January 2018, the SCRD adopted the Regional Organics Diversion Strategy. The goal of the Strategy is to develop a financially sustainable road map that will lead to a robust, region-wide organics diversion program.

Read the strategy here.

Background

Based on a 2014 residential waste composition study, over 44% of what is in our residential garbage can be composted instead of sent to the Sechelt Landfill. Diverting food scraps and other organics is one of the biggest opportunities to reduce the amount of garbage on the Sunshine Coast.
