The Curbside Organics Program was approved by City Council on June 1, 2021. The program will launch city-wide in spring of 2023. Green carts will be provided to 34,500 single-family homes and 7,500 multi-family residences (apartments/condos). Design and construction of a compost facility will start in 2022 and will be operational in spring of 2023 to support the roll-out.

Organics collection will include a weekly collection of green carts during the summer (April 1 – October 31) and a bi-weekly collection of green carts during the winter (November 1 – March 31).  Garbage and recycling collection will remain on an alternating bi-weekly schedule throughout the year.

Phase 1 of the Curbside Organics Program launched April 27, 2022 in select areas of the city. Click the link below to learn more.
