Proposed changes to how business manage food waste
The Town of Banff is proposing amendments to the Non-Residential Waste Bylaw regarding the diversion of food scraps.
The proposed change would require all non-residential sector entities to provide infrastructure for diversion of food scraps:
- Infrastructure may include but is not limited to storage bins or other receptacles, for the separation of food waste from garbage for use by the owner and occupants
- Every owner shall inform occupants of the food waste collection program and the opportunity to participate in separating food waste from garbage
