So the city doesn’t want us to put food waste in our garbage any longer. They say that if Canada is going to meet greenhouse gas reduction targets, we have to recycle better. This means that not only does our plate scrapings. vegetable and fruit peels go in a bucket; separating all plastic containers, paper, tin cans and foil, poly bags, from daily garbage is expected too. This means rinsing out food soiled containers and keeping a blue bag handy for these items is inevitable, if we’re all going to work together to re-direct these items.
But apartment living doesn’t always lend a solution to a food waste bucket. Many people don’t have a balcony to keep these odorous containers. What now? If your apartment has a board of directors, bring this questions to the table. How does an apartment separate 100’s of pounds of food waste a week from garbage containers? There may already be provision for newspapers, cardboard and blue box items, but what about electronic waste and household batteries and lights. This is how Captain Recycling can help by providing a weekly service to remove this food waste and recycling no longer permitted in the garbage stream.
