Get ready to recycle

New, green curbside kitchen scrap recycling bins and catchers are being rolled into driveways as early as next week, but collection won’t start until January.

The district received the bins and catchers earlier than expected, so they will be delivered to people’s homes immediately instead of in December.

The kitchen scraps recycling program is part of a Capital Regional District’s mandate to ban all organic waste from going to the landfill by 2015. The ban is expected to divert 30 per cent of all waste currently going into the landfill.

More information about the kitchen scraps collection program can be found at oakbay.ca or by calling public works at 250-598-4501.
