Everything you need to know about Compostable Waste

Is compostable collection required at all ICI properties?

Compostable collection is required at food services and food processing business in Abbotsford and is encouraged, but not yet required at other ICI properties. The City is in the beginning stages of developing composting requirements for the rest of the ICI sector. These measures will align the City with the proposed Fraser Valley Regional District (FVRD) initiative to implement sorting requirements for recyclables and compostable material across the region. Visit the Compostable Consultation page for details on the consultation process and the public consultation sessions.
