CRD’s Regional Kitchen Scraps Strategy

Starting January 1, 2015 the CRD’s ban on kitchen scraps entering Hartland Landfill comes into effect.  This means kitchen scraps must be separated from garbage and composted. In early 2013  the City of Victoria implemented the Kitchen Scraps and Garbage Program for residential homes.  

With this new ban, all apartment complexes and businesses must also separate kitchen scraps from garbage.  Please contact your waste collection provider for further details. Please note, the City of Victoria does not provide garbage and kitchen scraps collection for  apartment complexes and businesses.
