Cumberland Council has agreed to participate in the Comox Valley Regional District organics composting pilot project.
The pilot project proposes to collect kitchen waste organics, including meat and cooked food waste, along side the existing residential curb-side garbage and yard waste collection. The program will divert organics from the landfill and compost them instead. There is no additional cost to homeowners to participate in the program.
Watch for more information from the Comox Valley Regional District through the winter of 2012. Residential collection in Cumberland may start as early as January 2013.Search again
