The City is launching a pilot project to get more buildings on Organic Collection.The 2014 Organics Collection Pilot will provide support to buildings that do not currently on the Green Cart Program. It will focus primarily on stores, offices, restaurants, condo complexes and apartment buildings.

The project will help buildings prepare for a regulatory change coming in 2015 when Organics will be designated a controlled waste, meaning it is welcomed at the compost facility but not at the landfill. It will be much more costly to bring organics to the landfill vs the compost facility.
