Manitoba Composts Program
Organic materials such as leaf and yard wastes and food waste come from many sources including residences, grocery stores, restaurants, offices, and schools. It all adds up to a substantial amount that can be diverted from landfills to compost facilities. The Manitoba Composts program is a component of TomorrowNow-Manitoba’s Green Plan. The new program provides the foundation for municipal and commercial composting facilities to improve organic waste management.Manitoba Composts Program Outline
