Clear Bags for Garbage Program
Effective January 1st, 2012, residents, businesses, institutions and apartments must use clear bags for garbage disposal. It's simple! The colour of your garbage bag will change 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. Please check out the following links for more information on this program which will help make a cleaner tomorrow for all of us!
