Let’s Talk Trash
Between June 3 and June 22 2018, multi-unit residents were invited to talk trash. What we heard from multi-unit residents, property managers and other stakeholders will directly inform the design of a new multi-unit organics program, changes to existing recycling and waste services, and the development of other programs to divert and manage waste.
Multi-unit residents generate 8,600 tonnes of garbage per year that could be diverted from the landfill instead - primarily food waste and recyclable material. Keeping this waste out of the landfill would help the City reach its target of 70% waste diversion by 2023.

Two online surveys were open from June 3 - 22, 2018. One was for residents of multi-unit buildings and the other for property managers that oversee the waste collections for their multi-unit building(s).
Residents were invited to participate in a short activity to provide feedback and ideas. Pop-ups are come-and-go style events located at places where residents spend their time.

Property Manager Workshops
Two workshops were held on June 20 (6:30-8:30pm) and June 21 (2-4pm) for property managers that oversee the waste collections for their multi-unit building.
Workshops provided property managers - including condo boards and building owners - a chance to share preferences and ideas for the design and delivery of a multi-unit organics collection program.
