Saanich green bin contract awarded

Saanich council approved a contract Monday worth $280,912 for the assembly and distribution of nearly 64,000 organic waste collection carts.

Smithrite Delivery Systems will build the green bins in an unused agricultural warehouse at Panama Flats this winter, after which they will be shipped out to Saanich homes. The carts are part of a new three-way waste collection method to begin next spring. Residents will be required to move their garbage, recycling and organics bins to and from the curb.
