Port Coquitlam residents currently divert about 66% of their waste from the landfill. If we sort our waste properly, about 75% of what is typically thrown away can go into the green and blue carts, to a recycling depot or to a take-back program.
Three Reasons to Sort it Right:
- Avoid fines of up to $300 for continually putting the wrong things in your carts
- Prevent hikes in City disposal fees and fines that are eventually passed on to taxpayers
- Keep waste out of the landfill, where it releases gases and toxins
