Green Cart Exchange Service for Your Organic Waste

Our green cart exchange in Industrial Cape Breton and surrounding areas is provided through our sister company, Metro Sanitation Ltd. With this convenient cart exchange program, the cart is not just emptied; it is swapped for a high pressured hot water cleaned cart. Carts are exchanged on a regular schedule to meet our customer needs. Green/Organic carts are 64 gallon capacity commercial carts.


If you are already involved in the program, great! If you are considering participating in the green cart program, but are unsure due to concerns about pests or odours, consider these possible solutions:

  • Vinegar, baking soda and salt help reduce odour.
  • Don’t store green carts in the sun. Choose a dry, shaded, and well-ventilated area whenever possible as bright sunlight and heat accelerate decomposition of organic materials and will increase odours.
  • Don’t skip a collection day! Even if your cart is less than full, put it out for collection so that the materials don’t develop strong odours. 
  • Garden lime sprinkled in carts will kill maggots if they appear.

If you would like to learn more about the green cart program, please contact us.
