Curbside Food Waste Collection
Green Bin Program coming Fall 2020!
What is the service?
- Weekly collection of food waste and food soiled paper
- 45-litre SCRD-provided Green Bin

The materials collected from the Green Bin program will be processed into compost, a benefical resource.
Food waste accounts for approximately 35% of household garbage found in the Sechelt Landfill. Diverting food from the landfill will help extend the life of the landfill whic at our current rate of disposal, is scheduled to close in 2025.
Garbage collection will be reduced to every other week with the launch of the Green Bin program.
