Multi-Residential Waste Diversion Strategy is approved by City Council
Ottawa City Council received and approved the Multi-Residential Waste Diversion Strategy report on April 27th, 2022. The report recommended that Council:
- 1. Approve the scope, framework, and project pillars for the Multi-Residential Waste Diversion Strategy; and,
- Direct staff to finalize the detailed cost analysis and implementation plan for onboarding all multi-residential properties to a mandatory organics diversion program, and report back to Council in the first half of 2023.

What are the next steps?
Beginning June 1, 2022, any property that begins receiving City collection services would be required to participate in the Green Bin program.
Multi-residential properties already receiving City waste collection can continue to sign up for the program voluntarily for the remainder of 2022.
Staff will work on developing an implementation plan to onboard all remaining multi-residential properties to the Green Bin program. An update on the implementation plan, including the timeline and program requirements, will be shared with City Council in 2023.
