Solid waste wildlife-proof enclosure design guidelines

RMOW Solid Waste Bylaw No. 2139, 2017 outlines what is required for garbage disposal facilities.

Specifically relevant to construction sites, the Solid Waste Bylaw sets out requirements to ensure that construction bins are managed appropriately. Wildlife attractants (see bylaw for definition; mostly associated with food and food containers) must not be placed in construction bins. If a construction bin is placed on the site, it is the owner’s responsibility to control what is placed in it by workers and by members of the public.
