TransLink jurisdiction. TransLink is planning to instile turnstiles in stations in the very near future, with smart card technology coming to the region by 2013.
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.

I wouldn't limit this just to adding apartments and condos, but also to include office buildings. We found a company to service our office compost since the City didn't have such a service (we pay for this service). With the amount of coffee grounds, used paper towel, vegetable and fruit scraps that are thrown into office garbage, it would be highly adviseable to include office towers in the composting plan.
The City supports this idea, but implementation requires action outside municipal jurisdiction. The City will continue to advocate to the Province and ICBC for PAYD insurance.
