Green Bins in Schools Program – Ottawa

Green Bins in Schools Program - Ottawa

(Theme 7 – Waste)

Organization: City of Ottawa

Timeline for Completion: Started 2011 Ongoing


The Green Bins in Schools program is an extension of the City’s residential green bin program, and provides an excellent opportunity to educate children on how to use the green bin and to promote the benefits of waste diversion.

The program is provided free of charge by the City of Ottawa and offers an excellent hands-on opportunity for students to learn how to divert organic material such as food waste and soiled paper products from landfill. The City provides curbside green bins, classroom-sized containers, program signage, and weekly collection services.
