Multi-Unit Collection

Multi-unit Waste, Recycling and Organics Plans

All multi-unit properties in Cochrane must have on-site Organics programs implemented.

The Owner or Manager of a Multi-residential Premises must ensure that Waste, Recyclable and Organics Material emanating from the Premises is collected, stored and disposed of in accordance with the Waste, Recycling and Organics Plan in place for that Premises and that all residents are notified in writing of the requirements for waste, recycling and organics within 30 days of moving in.

It is now mandatory for all multi-unit properties to provide on-site waste, recycling and organics collection for their residents.

The intention is to reach the diversion goals set by the Zero Waste Framework and ensure that Cochrane residents living in apartment complexes, condos and unserviced townhome complexes have access to convenient recycling and organics services just like single family homes in Cochrane.

The overall vision is Zero Waste, with the interim goal of 80% of waste diverted from landfill by 2020. The Zero Waste Framework strategy includes waste generated at multi-unit properties as well.
