Red Deer, Alberta is ahead of the curve

Red Deer in Alberta is among leading-edge cities collecting pet waste and litter along with its compostables.  If all goes well, their two-year Green Cart pilot program will go city-wide in 2017.  Will plastic bags be a problem?  Not when residents follow city instructions: “Look for compostable bags – not biodegradable or degradable – certified with the BPI or Compostable logo. They can be found alongside garbage bags at most retailers.”  And “good guys” GLAD Canada is providing corporate support by donating compostable bags to all pilot households.
