About 4,000 residents in the neighbourhoods of Daniel McIntyre, Inkster Gardens, Linden Woods, Linden Ridge, Mission Gardens and St. George will take part in a residential food waste collection pilot program of the city of Winnipeg that was launched this week.
The residents are encouraged to take their compost to the curb along with their garbage and recycling for collection.
The city will collect the organic waste on the same day it collects garbage and recycling. It will be composted at the Brady Road Resource Management Facility.
The two-year program will run until September 2022 and hopes to reduce green house emission at the Brady Road Landfill.
