Westmount’s food waste collection program has been in place for over 13 years and is expanding throughout the City. The collection includes single-family homes, apartment buildings, and interested institutions and businesses. In 2021, more than 605 tonnes of food waste have been collected by the City and diverted from landfills to produce compost!
The City encourages all citizens to participate in food waste collection and reduce the amount of garbage they send to landfills. Buildings between 9 and 100 units are strongly encouraged to participate and offer this collection to their tenants.
