Food scraps haulers
Browse our listing of food scraps haulers and review helpful screening questions.
Did you know that, in 2015, food scraps can't go in the garbage? Start your recycling food scraps and hire a hauler today. Recycling food scraps reduces garbage and greenhouse gases, and creates compost for local agriculture.
Food scraps (raw food, cooked food, plate scrapings, and leftovers) will no longer be allowed in the garbage starting in 2015. This is because Metro Vancouver landfills and incinerators, and related City bylaws, will ban the disposal of food scraps, yard trimmings, and other compostable materials.
