Diverting our Food WastePosted: November 19, 2013
In Metro Vancouver, we send over 1 million tonnes of “municipal solid waste” to the landfill, 40 percent of which is food waste. This could be diverted from the landfill and in fact, food scraps will be banned from garbage starting in 2015. This video shows what we can do to recycle our food scraps, profiling an innovative program called Food Scraps Drop Spots (foodscrapsdropspot.ca).
Check out this video from David Lee (who also happens to be one of the Recycling Champions in his apartment building) to see where your food scraps go.
