The garbage collection and composting system on the island of Montreal is slowly undergoing a make-over. In some quarters of the city, green waste such as orange peels and chicken bones are turned into compost instead of being sent to landfill sites, bringing municipal authorities one step closer to setting up compost collections across the entire island. As of Wednesday, there will be public hearings about a plan to build four compost-treatment centres which would take green waste from across the island and turn them into compost or biogas which could in return be used to fuel vehicles or to heat homes.
