Vancouver’s “Greenest City: 2020 Action Plan” mandates a reduction of solid waste going to landfills and incinerators by 50% between 2008 and 2020. It also calls for a limited amount of space devoted to landfill sites.
Banned materials include:
• Soil and wood treated with creosote
• Drywall, concrete, metal, corrugated cardboard, and tires
• Hazardous or banned waste
• Buckets, drums, and other containers for liquids
