#545.3 Increasing Collection Capacity in Multi-Residential Buildings

Projects Description

Increasing collection capacity in multi-residential buildings to best practice levels (1 cart for every 7 units or 50L/unit). For this project, the Township of Alfred and Plantagenet launched a cart service program to address broad inconsistencies – in collection containers and materials collected – in its MR sector. To create a uniform program for its 600 MR households, staff introduced 95-gallon carts across the board and initiated a single-stream program consistent with its curbside collection. The cart program was a success and diversion rate increased by more than 20% from 2015 to 2016.
