Composting can divert 40% of waste heading to the landfill.
We’re here to help all Manitobans reduce their food waste. We work with homes, schools and communities to learn more about composting and how to make it practical and possible for everyone!
Our Composting team is here to offer tips to get you started, deliver presentations, and share expert knowledge.
Explore ways to start composting at home, in your community and how to get involved.

It can make a difference! Reduce greenhouse gases and return those nutrients to your soil.
Here are a few of the programs that help Manitobans compost in their community.
On Site Composting
Residents in condos and apartment buildings can now compost food scraps in a compost bin right on the property with On Site. Our resources and tools can help get you started.
Over half (58%) of all food produced in Canada is wasted, and 32% of this wasted food is avoidable. We offer tips and tricks to help reverse this trend.
