City Council is currently reviewing an update on the development and implementation of the pilot project.
Approximately 4,000 homes from the following five neighbourhoods will be selected to participate:
- Daniel McIntyre
- Inkster Gardens
- Linden Woods/Linden Ridge
- Mission Gardens
- St. George
These neighbourhoods were selected because they reflect the diversity of Winnipeggers and types of homes, and how their waste is collected. Only certain households within these areas will have the opportunity to participate in the pilot. In August 2020, selected households will be notified by letter that they have been selected. Details on how the pilot project will be rolled out and more information on residential food waste collection will be available later this summer.
Public engagement opportunities are planned to start in fall 2020. The public engagement during the pilot project will be used to inform recommendations towards a citywide program. Opportunities include:
- Understanding support, satisfaction, and participation for a potential city-wide program.
- Studying the effectiveness of collection containers, small kitchen pails/liners, promotion and education material, and other supports.
- Identifying other barriers and challenges.
