On April 27 Markham Council unanimously approved the Town-wide implementation of a new three-stream waste management system. The first phase of Markham’s Mission Green begins in September 2004 involving 15,000 households, in eastern Markham. The second phase will be rolled out to the remaining Town households (about 55,000) in September 2005. Every residence will receive a green cart and a kitchen container that will be used for organic waste. At the same time, Markham will be expanding its blue box program. Also, the Town’s recycling depots, which have been in operation since the 1970s, will continue to be an important component.
