Waste Services Bylaw (20363)
The new Waste Services Bylaw (20363) helps prepare for changes to the way waste is sorted and collected at apartments and condos. Apartment and condo collection is called communal collection in the bylaw.
Three-stream Waste Collection
This bylaw mandates three-stream collection (garbage, recycling and food scraps) at all apartments and condos. This will be phased in across the City over the next 4 years.
Waste Stream Co-location
This means that collection containers for all 3 streams of waste (garbage, recycling and food scraps) will need to be located near each other and equally accessible. This includes containers in indoor and outdoor waste collection areas. We will assist property managers and developers with this change.
