Event Description

While the region as a whole has a current waste diversion rate of 55 percent, multi-family residential has a diversion rate of only 16 percent. With the majority of our growing population expected to live in multi-family households, how do we accelerate waste diversion in this sector? The multi-family residential sector faces unique challenges such as shared garbage bins, limited space for adding containers to collect recyclable or organics, and limited access for recycling collection vehicles. How do we overcome these challenges and who needs to be involved? Regional Dialogue 604-436-6993
