why recycle your organic waste

Canada generates over 32,000,000 tonnes of solid municipal waste per year. As waste generation per capita continues to increase by 1.5% annually, waste diversion is crucial. The good news is, organic waste (food/green) can be recycled and converted into renewable energy. By diverting organic waste from the landfills you can help in creating a more sustainable environment. Collective Waste’s organic cart services will provide positive benefits to your commercial business by reducing costs when you separate heavy organics from general waste bins.
