The City of London is continuing to engage residents in the design of our Green Bin program. We are hoping to learn more about what will drive your ability and desire to participate in this new program. Share your input and please complete our online feedback form.

What is a Green Bin?

A Green Bin is like a blue (recycling) bin, but for food waste such as fruit and vegetable skins, spoiled leftovers, and other inedible food waste like bones. The Green Bin would be collected from your home at the curbside much like your Blue Box is, and the materials from your Green Bin would be composted or digested.

Other materials like diapers and pet waste can also be incorporated in a Green Bin program, but these additional items add costs to be included in the program. For some of these items, such as diapers, the majority of the item will end up in the landfill.

It is expected that a curbside Green Bin program for London will begin in the fall of 2022.
