Municipal Food Scraps Program

Food Scraps Recycling

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

​​While the Organics Disposal Ban applies to the entire Metro Vancouver Region, each member jurisdiction has its own approach to the collection and processing of food scraps. What is accepted in the compost in one municipality may not be elsewhere.

Metro Vancouver provides general informat​​ion, but for specific details please contact your local municipality using the information below.
