Town of Cochrane Council adopted the Zero Waste Framework in 2012.
The overall vision is Zero Waste, with the interim goal of 80% of waste diverted from landfill by 2020. The strategy includes waste generated at multi-unit properties as well.
In June 2014, Town of Cochrane Council approved an amendment to the Waste Management Bylaw requiring all multi-unit properties to provide on-site recycling for their residents.
On April 09, 2018 Town of Cochrane Council approved an amendment to the Waste Management Bylaw requiring all multi-unit properties to provide on-site organics for their residents.
The intention of the amendments 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.
On or before June 30th, 2018:
Property owners or managers can submit a Multi-unit Waste, Recycling and Organics Plan here.
