Green Bin Program Update

The City of Toronto has hired staff to go door-to-door in North York to talk with residents about the new Green Bin Program. The door-to-door visits will start on July 21st.

A literature will be distributed to residents in multi-languages including: French, Chinese, Farsi, Italian, Korean, Punjabi, Russian, Spanish, Tamil and Vietnamese. Should a resident not be home when staff visit, the literature will be left at the door or mailbox for them. Residents will continue to receive lots of information over the next few months of the program.

Facts about the Green Bin Program:

  • Each household will receive two new containers; a small one for your kitchen and a larger green bin to take to the curb.
  • Starting the week of October 24, 2006, garbage will be collected every two weeks, and green bin compost will be collected every week.
  • The green bin material will be made into high-quality compost used by farms and parks.
