Third round of recycling program in Central Manitoulin

By Rosalind Russell – Did you want to participate in the Food Cycler Pilot program but thought you missed your chance? You are in luck.

The Municipality of Central Manitoulin still has a few units remaining.

Round 3 of registration is now open and will remain open until all the units are claimed.

Food Cycler machines are on-site composting alternatives that help to divert organic waste from the landfill.

The Municipality is partnering with Ottawa-based company Food Cycle Science Corporation with support from Impact Canada to make an additional 100 units available to residents at a discounted rate in 2023. Participants in the extended-pilot program will track their usage over a 12-week period and answer a brief exit survey to help the municipality and Food Cycle Science assess whether the program is effective.

The pilot project will test out whether the use of the system can help reduce waste and greenhouse gases as well as decrease the cost of waste disposal. Photo provided by FoodCycle Sciences.
