Saanich gives green-thumbs up to kitchen scrap collection
January 08, 2013 CFAX 1070
Saanich is the latest to take up curbside kitchen scrap collection.
Council voted Monday night to proceed with the plan. The program will be up and running in about 15-months (Spring 2014), with kitchen scraps picked up alongside garbage.
Councilor Dean Murdock says Saanich’s system will be different than how the City of Victoria does it.
“The difference with what you’re seeing in the City of Victoria is we’re co-mingling, as they call it, garden waste as well. It can be added to the big green orgranic bins.”
Victoria is about to start it’s curbside collection of kitchen scraps.
Murdock was speaking with C-FAX 1070’s Al Ferraby.
