Squamish Yard Waste Collection - Update

The Yard Waste Collection program is in full swing throughout the District of Squamish now.  Carney’s has placed over 250 curbside totes with Green Lids to our contest winners, congratulations to all.  With three weeks of participation we have diverted over 58 Metric Tonnes of yard waste to be composted at Whistler’s municipal compost facility.  Over 22 MT was collected last week which is a 37% increase over the first week.  As a reminder please have your yard waste out by 7:45 am on your collection day.  Soil produced from the facility is available at the Whistler Transfer station or for less than 12 yards call Spectrum Landscaping at 604 892-5015; for more than 12 yards contact Colleen Carney at Carney’s Waste Systems at 604 892-4901.
