Why is the Town of Banff proposing these requirement changes?

The Town of Banff strives to be a model environmental community, where everything we do is guided by a goal to protect this special place.

The Town of Banff has a goal to divert 70% of waste by 2028, and ultimately send zero waste to landfill by 2050. It is estimated that 65% of Banff’s waste to landfill comes from the commercial sector and about 50% of that is food waste. Separating food waste can save Banff businesses money, as renting and servicing a food bin is 40% cheaper than garbage.
