Projects Description

In this best practices initiative, the City of Barrie: increased container space per building to meet the recommended ratio of 1 cart for every 7 units; increased in-unit storage capacity, and; ensured educational material was received by residents through hand delivery. The report provides many details of Barrie’s multi-residential sector, including data on barriers to recycling. Overall, this program boosted the municipality’s well-established MR program by 20% (tonnage).
