Is there a financial reason for businesses to participate in the 3-Stream program? 

Yes, properly sorted Recyclables and Organics can be disposed of at a reduced fee compared to our regular landfill tipping fee. Please find our current fee structure on our Commercial page. All our waste is placed in dumpsters. Does the colour of the bag matter? Does it have to be bagged at all? 

If the waste is picked up from the dumpster the following rules apply. 

  • Sorted recyclables should be put in a blue transparent bag or be unbagged. 

  • Sorted organics should be put in a green transparent bag or be unbagged. 

  • Garbage is preferred in clear bags or may be unbagged.
