I'm coming to stay with you in September


That was the message on a notice sent out to residents of Newmarket ON to introduce "Binny," the container that the city would use to collect food waste in its new composting program.


The program started in September 2007. By November the town was diverting 78% of its waste from the landfill.


Can we do this here?

Whoa! Well with stats like that, if Metro Vancouver is really looking for a solution, that sounds like a good one!
