Organics Recycling Beginning April 1 (no joke!)

It’s official! We will be starting our Organics Recycling with a two-week trial on April 1.

In preparation for this, you will need to source some kind of a container that you will collect your food scraps in, similar to these ones at London Drugs:


(you don’t need to go out an purchase something, any plastic container with a lid will be fine)

You can start collecting your organics at any time, and you can store them in the freezer until April 1. Once your suite’s bin is full, take your scraps down to the recycling room, where there will be a new bin (as of April 1) to dump them into. We will have this picked up once a week.

Here’s a list of what you can and cannot put into organic recycling:

Here are some more tips to live a green lifestyle.

PAL in the News

Our next door neighbour, the Performing Arts Lodge, was in the news recently.

There was an article in The Vancouver Sun about how they are managing their organic waste. Seeing as we have to come up with a similar plan, I thought I would share it with you: Artist’s Residence Closes the Loop on Food Scraps.

And here’s more information about the company, Worm Worx.
