I believe green cart composting is a big issue in Hamilton. become a sustainable city:
The Green Cart Program provides curbside organics collection for approximately 2500 households in the City of Hamilton. Phase I of the program was deemed a success with residents diverting anywhere from 34% to 63% of their waste from landfill. Phase II of the program began in May 2004, with the addition of approximately 2000 households. Results from Phase I and II of the program have provided valuable information that has been used to shape the program being rolled-out across the City in the spring of 2006.
The Spec and CH will do their part in presenting all the crybabies who would rather dump everything into the harbour, but initiatives like this will really change Hamilton's image - by changing its reality.
