Open Houses - Kitchen Pitch-In Program

This April, the Municipality of North Cowichan will host a series of five Open Houses at venues throughout the area. These drop-in community events will give residents an opportunity to learn about the new Kitchen Pitch-In Organics Collection Program that starts May 1, 2012.

Residents can interact with staff and learn about the materials used in the new North Cowichan Kitchen Pitch-In Organics Collection Program, such as the green bin, kitchen container, various bin liners, and examples of what items are accepted and are not accepted in the program.

The Municipality of North Cowichans new weekly Kitchen Organics Collection Program will enable residents to easily dispose of household organic material, such as food waste and soiled paper products. Green organics bins with start-up kits will be delivered, starting April 2, to all households that receive curbside waste collection. Delivery of the green bins should be complete by April 21.

Inside the green bin residents will find a kitchen container, a program guide that explains how to participate in the program, a large decal that lists acceptable and unacceptable materials, and some sample certified compostable bags.
