Clear Bags for Garbage Program
Since January 1st, 2012, residents, businesses, institutions and apartments must use clear bags for garbage disposal. It's simple! The colour of your garbage bag changed from dark green or black to a clear, non-coloured bag. Blue bags are to be used for recyclables and the green cart for organics. All garbage delivered to the Balefill Facility in Kemptown MUST be in clear bags. This program has helped keep thousands of tonnes of valuable resources out of our landfill. Thank you for helping make a cleaner tomorrow for all of us!
