Winnipeg needs organics pickup now!

This petition had 439 supporters


Winnipeg needs an organics pick up program for residents. We need to reduce organics going to Brady landfill, as it's the second largest greenhouse gas emitter in the province. Most other major Canadian cities have already successfully adopted a pick up service and are taking action on climate change. The City should continue with its plans to consult with residents in an open and equitable way. Let's stop delays and ensure a residential compost pickup program moves forward now and makes Winnipeg a more sustainable city. 

I support the movement for organics pick up for Winnipeg residents because:

  • Organic materials represent 40% of residential waste that could be diverted from the landfill with composting initiatives
  • Winnipeggers who already backyard compost can continue to do so and benefit from greater waste diversion by composting meat, bones and dairy with a green bin.

Please sign this petition and share widely.
