Green Bin Program

Green Bin Program to begin the week of January 12th

Beginning in January 2015 all schools will begin a Green Bin Program as part of the Board’s waste disposal agreement with the City of Toronto. The movement to organics recycling across the TDSB is an important opportunity that allows us to teach students best practices for sorting waste while reducing our environmental impact.

By December all schools will receive the materials needed to implement their program on a small scale. Starting the week of January 12th, 2015 all schools must start putting organic waste out for weekly collection.
