The City of Vancouver is aiming to be a zero waste city by 2040. We've already made big progress diverting compostable organic materials from the garbage, and now with the Love Food Hate Waste campaign we hope to inspire and empower Vancouver households to make their food go further by reconsidering how it's purchased, kept fresh and used efficiently.

Last week Mayor Robertson visited Anaconda Systems - an urban distributed organic waste processing system located here in Vancouver. The modular design and odour-free composting technology makes these systems ideal to be deployed throughout cities. Congrats to Anaconda Systems for an innovative new approach to urban composting!

Summer patio season is here! And now many are open until 1 am as part of the City’s extended patio season hours. Outdoor seating can enliven city streets and enhance public life while being good for the economy. Check out the map to patios all over Vancouver on the City website: link in bio.

Breaking: the largest investment in transit and transportation in Metro Vancouver’s history was approved and finalized by the Mayor’s Council on Regional Transportation and the Translink Board of Directors today. This is the next step for building the Broadway Subway and will deliver a new B-Line route along 41st avenue next year in Vancouver, as part of a massive increase in transit service across Metro.
