Wheat City set to unveil green cart program in 2013

The City of Brandon is launching a curbside organics green cart program in 2013.

The program will provide up to 6,000 volunteer households with a “green cart” for curbside collection of household and yard organic material.

When fully implemented, the program will help make it possible for Brandon to reach, and exceed, an overall landfill waste diversion rate of 70 per cent.

A public information meeting on the green cart program is scheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 20, from 7 p.m.- 8 p.m. in the main foyer at Brandon City Hall.

City administration will be in attendance to provide information and answer questions about the program. Sign-up sheets for households interested in participating in the program will also be available.

It is anticipated carts could be delivered to program participants in early 2013, with collection to start in spring 2013.

For more information about the curbside organics green cart program, call the City of Brandon sanitation department at 204-729-2281 or email greencart@brandon.ca.

Also on the agenda during the open house will be the current five-year review of the City of Brandon’s Environmental Strategic Plan.

The plan was first established in 2007 to provide a framework for identifying priorities and actions on how to make the city a greener place both as a community and as an organization.

The city’s environmental initiatives staff will be on hand at the meeting to take public feedback on what environmental initiatives residents would like to see the city take.
