UPDATED GREEN WASTE COLLECTION GUIDELINES
Organic Waste Pick-up
New weekly limit beginning September 1, 2023
Starting September 1, 2023 the limit for organic waste will be changed to 1 kitchen waste container and a maximum of three bags of yard waste per week. (If you do not put out your kitchen/food waste container, you will still be limited to a maximum of 3 bags of yard waste).
Bowen Waste staff are experiencing repetitive strain injuries from the sheer quantity of yard waste picked up each week. Reducing the quantity of waste bags will keep the staff healthy. The staff lift the bags and bins over shoulder height into a truck.
You can help keep the staff stay healthy by:
Need a Food Waste Green Can sticker for your green waste can. Come to BIRD and the staff will give you a sticker (or two) for free!
A FRIENDLY REMINDER
Please, do not place any paint, hazardous waste, or recycling in green waste containers!
