Composting

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.

Why Compost?

It’s easy! Way easier than you think.

It’s worth it! Save money, water and garbage going to the landfill.

It can make a difference! Reduce greenhouse gases and return those nutrients to your soil.

Our Highlights

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.

Food Waste

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.

Prairie Dog Projects

What we did in 2018 – 2019
