 Grasscycling and leaf mulching are also part of the proposed strategy. Both activities, in addition to saving time, help reduce discarded organic material and the cost of collection, transportation and treatment.

 The City offers options to help you dispose of your waste responsibly. Note that green residue collections will increase from 8 to 22 in 2015, from April to November. Before throwing it away, think of the 3Rs!
