"Zero Waste 2040
Our vision is for Vancouver to be a zero waste community by 2040.
To reduce and ultimately stop disposing of solid waste in landfills or incinerators, as a city we will:
Prevent waste of all types, including wasted food at all points between farm and table
Compost inedible food or convert it into fuel
Repair and maintain products and materials to extend their lives
Share, reuse, and refurbish products and materials before recycling them"
