Metro Vancouver is preparing to ban landfill disposal of all food scraps and yard trimmings by 2015. In preparation for this ban a number of municipalities in the Greater Vancouver Regional District have altered their garbage collection schedules to collect garbage biweekly and organics on a weekly basis.

This move will significantly reduce landfill volumes and will also serve to save taxpayers a considerable amount of money while also benefiting the environment.

This initiative is also taking place across Canada and can be expected to be the way of the future as Canadians continue to adopt a more sustainable and environmentally sensitive approach to life.

Unfortunately there is a cost associated with this excellent green initiative which we have all experienced. Our waste bins are paying the price and becoming dirtier and smellier than ever before.

For the price of a fancy coffee Happy Bin Cleaning can help make this transition safer and more comfortable for everyone by offering our environmentally friendly bin cleaning service.
