Residents in townhouses, condos, apartments and other multi-family residences, as well as businesses and institutions will need to begin collecting food waste separately from garbage and recyclables effective April 1, 2020. These new requirements align with the Fraser Valley Regional Districts (FVRD) project to implement sorting requirements across the region for all sectors.

If you have any questions about how these new requirements will impact you, please ask us a question! We will share ideas, resources and information here and we encourage you to share your ideas on implementing these changes.

Please Note: The FVRD’s Source Separation Bylaw and the City’s Solid Waste Collection Bylaw come into effect on April 1, 2020. However, due to the disruption and concerns the Covid-19 virus (coronavirus) is already causing to businesses and to residents, the City will be postponing the promotion and enforcement of the new waste sorting requirements. Instead, the City will be focusing efforts on education and gaining compliance over time, as opposed to any immediate enforcement considerations. The City will continue to work with residents, stratas, businesses and haulers to continue to support waste diversion efforts across our City.
