Alberta must have lots of open space. Of course they have less than 4 million people living in the entire province. Not so in Ontario….we’ve got more than that living within a 30 minute drive in any direction. So it stands to reason that all those people create a great deal of garbage.
As a result the City has a well organized plan to reduce, reuse, recycle…including your food scraps at the end of the meal. Put them in the garbage …oh no! Put in the green bin – mashed potatoes, left over KFC, carrot sticks, stale lettuce, bits of gravy, crumbs from the toaster…it all goes in the green bin. And then once a week you put it out with the garbage bin (black) and the recycling bin (blue) for pick up.
However, somethings don’t go in the green bin. The City has a solution to help you know what doesn’t go in the green bin!
