Burnaby, Let’s Recycle More!
Thank you, Burnaby residents, for your sustainable efforts that have reduced the amount of garbage we throw away. Burnaby’s residential garbage disposal rate has decreased while our recycling rate continues to increase. We ask residents to make waste reduction and diversion a priority in their home to help us reach our City goal of 70% diversion by 2015!
Food Scraps Recycling
About 50% of residential garbage is food. Recycle your scraps!
