|DID YOU KNOW?|
Paper coffee cups and waxy cold drink cups do not break down during the composting process.
The plastic liners and waxy coatings on these cups cause contamination. Please put them in the garbage—not in your green cart.
Let’s make better compost. For more information, call (902) 543-2991.

Did you know that some of the worst contamination found in the green cart comes from items left in fast food bags?
Did You Know?
Compostable bags get stuck in grinding equipment at the Composting Facility. These bags do not fully break down and contaminate compost.
Residents and businesses are required to place household garbage in clear, transparent bags, free from colour. Sorting guidelines have not changed, only the colour of the garbage bag.
There is an allowance for one (1) opaque bag, per household/business, per collection. Apartment buildings are allowed one (1) opaque bag per unit. The opaque bag may be black, green or white (non-transparent).
