Waste diversion

The City has hired its first Corporate Zero Waste Officer to implement a more comprehensive waste diversion program in most City facilities like offices, theatres, libraries and police departments.

This comprehensive waste diversion program will include:

  • Multi-stream recycling
  • Full-scale composting
  • Detailed data for all waste streams generated for all facilities

This coordinated approach for waste management will enable the City to better understand the waste streams, track data, and identify additional opportunities for improvement, as well as offer a standardized solution across civic facilities that will help reach the Greenest City zero waste goal.
