Green Can Food Scraps Recycling Program

green-can step-1Recycle Your Food Scraps Using the Green Can Program

The Curbside Yard Trimmings Collection Program has expanded to accept both food scraps and food soiled paper. For a list of accepted materials, click here.

The program is called the Green Can and is available to all residences eligible for curbside yard trimmings collection.

The Green Can Program helps the environment and minimizes increases to garbage collection fees. It's important to participate in the Green Can Program, and to backyard compost, because food scraps are now banned from the landfill by Metro Vancouver.

For more information about program details in your municipality, choose your municipality below:
