In the coming weeks, the City of Winnipeg’s residential food waste collection pilot project will begin for approximately 4,000 households across Winnipeg.
Welcome packages are being delivered this week to those homes that have been selected for the residential food waste collection pilot project. The welcome package includes:
- a 120-litre green cart
- a seven-litre kitchen pail to collect day-to-day food waste in your home
- a sample of compostable kitchen pail liner bags
- participation instructions, including a list of accepted materials
Only those homes that received the welcome package can participate in the pilot project. Participation in the pilot project is completely voluntary.
The City will conduct a few waste audits over the course of the pilot project to see how pilot households are using the program and identify potential issues. The City will also be seeking feedback from pilot households through engagement activities.
