Food Waste Programs

Don’t Treat Your Food Waste Like Garbage!

By diverting your food waste, you can:

Reduce Your Garbage
Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions
Provide Material to Produce Compost

Commercial Food Waste Disposal Changes

Commercial food waste generated in Salmon Arm, Sicamous, and Electoral Areas C and D is now
marketable, and can be composted at a private facility.

The commercial food waste disposal fee is $120/tonne.  All businesses and commercial institutions will be impacted, including:

• Hotels • Theatres, Arenas and Sports Facilities
• Grocery Stores • Shopping Malls
• Schools • Restaurants
• Community Associations • Resorts
• Offices • Manufacturers
• Hospitals, Nursing Homes and Senior Care Centres • Municipal Buildings
