Better meal planning results in fewer wasted ingredients and will save money and time. Many peels that we discard such as those from potatoes and apples are edible, full of vitamins, and add extra flavour to dishes.
Be creative with your leftovers. Donate non-perishable food items that you won't use to local food banks.
A 5 gallon pail of kitchen organics is accepted for free at CVRD RecyclingCentres. Ensure there is no garbage, metal, plastic, styrofoam, yard and garden waste, pet waste, carcasses, or butchering waste mixed in with your food waste.
