    The City supports Metro Vancouver’s plans to ban food scraps from the incinerator and landfills by 2015. The City will collaborate with Metro Vancouver to develop and implement a plan to ensure apartments, condos, businesses and institutions have access to food scraps collection programs before the ban comes into effect.

    This is vitally important. Removing compostable material from landfills would reduce methane in the atmosphere. It also means more nutrients returning to the soil. This is a no brainer, we should be doing it already.
