Food Waste Survey

November 10, 2022

The Fraser Valley Regional District (FVRD) wants to hear from people living in apartments, condos, or townhouse complexes about food waste collection services offered in their building.

The FVRD has a solid waste Bylaw 1495, which requires that all recyclable materials and food waste be sorted from the garbage and delivered to appropriate waste processing or disposal facilities.

The bylaw applies to all residential and commercial properties in Abbotsford, Chilliwack, Harrison Hot Springs, Hope, Kent, Mission, and all FVRD electoral areas. It applies to all single-family homes, apartment and condo buildings, townhouses, and other strata complexes.

Take the survey by December 9 at

For buildings already collecting all three waste streams - congratulations and we would like to hear how it is going so far.  If your building isn’t yet collecting food waste, let us know so we can help get a system started up.  The survey takes only five minutes to complete.
