The city has a high percentage of high-rise buildings, which traditionally have low recycling rates. Many older high-rise buildings do not have adequate recycling facilities. To lift our diversion rate we are working with building owners and owners corporations to provide recycling education and improve practices within high-rise buildings. Though a separate collection, all of the green waste generated from parks, gardens and street trees is recycled. While this is the vast majority of the municipality’s green waste, it is not counted in this measure
