Toronto Auto Cart Collection Expansion

Projects Description

The City of Toronto received $1,418,000 representing 50% of their funding request to the CIF to expand their automated cart collection system in the city including the purchase of three combined natural gas vehicles. The vehicles will allow the City to test the potential to convert their fleet to biogas derived from their landfill and green bin operations. Savings of almost $900,000 per year are expected through the conversion of these 46 vehicles to automated collection trucks.  The total project costs are approximately $11,700,000 and will divert an additional3,000 tonnes of blue box material annually.
