Toward zero waste
Under the Greenest City 2020 Action Plan, the City has set a target to reduce solid waste going to the landfill or incinerator by 50% from 2008 levels.
To achieve this goal, the City is committed to:
- Expanding the existing citywide Green Bin Program to allow the collection of all household food waste
- Developing education and enforcement programs to keep recyclables out of the waste stream
- Advocating for more Extended Producer Responsibility programs for packaging
- Developing a building deconstruction program
