Food Scraps no longer acceptable in the Garbage

Green Can Program

The Green Can Program is the easiest and most convenient way to compost food scraps, soiled paper, and yard trimmings while helping the environment at the same time.
Beginning the first week of May 2011, approximately 20,000 households that receive garbage collection through the Township of Langley (strata dwellers: verify service eligibility with your property management company) will be able to separate all food scraps and place them with their yard trimmings. The Green Can Program is designed to help our community prevent food scraps and other compostable items from going to the garbage dump. And since nearly 40% of all household garbage is compostable, youll be helping our community achieve the goal of substantially reducing the amount of garbage being thrown away. Now that is something to feel good about!
