As part of the Re-image Waste Reduction and Recycling initiative a new compost element has been introduced where residents will have multiple options to divert their food waste by composting.

 

Residents wishing to particpate will have the opportunity to backyard compost, drop off their food scraps at designated locations or have them collected at their door.
