Solid Waste Bylaw Second Reading

This is to serve notice that the Council of the Town of Yarmouth, at its meeting on June 11th, 2020, at 3:30pm, will consider and if deemed advisable approve the Second Reading to amend its Solid Waste Resource By-Law.

The amendment introduces the prohibition on Sale of Plastic Compostable Products.

No business shall offer for sale or otherwise provide to any customer of the business a plastic compostable product without first obtaining a permit from the Town to do so.

The Town shall issue a permit for the sale of a compostable product only if the Town is satisfied that the compostable product is an organic and acceptable to the Town in a green cart.

Any business that contravenes this bylaw is guilty of an offence.

The current By-Law can be viewed here:
