Trash container stickers

Download and print these trash container labels. Stick them to the appropriate container to help you sort your trash. Help divert more waste out of landfill and into the right waste management stream.

Backyard composting

Backyard composting is also recycling! Industrial, commercial and institutional sectors have their food waste taken away by a private hauler to the Kenloch Waste Management Facility.

Residential composting is not collected roadside in Inverness County. Residents should be using a backyard composter of some sort so there is very little food waste going in their regular garbage.

Composting takes very little effort, just a slight change in some of our daily habits. The more we keep out of the landfill the less leachate (liquid created when food waste comes into contact with water) is formed. Keeping organics out of landfills is one way to reduce environmental risks.
