  • Office composting: While cleaning for our clients, we noticed a large volume of organic waste generated in offices and discarded into the garbage. Businesses, unlike residences, don't have access to a composting program, so organic waste is put into the garbage and sent to the landfill. Kitchener Clean has developed and now proudly offers an "Office Compost Program" to businesses in the Waterloo Region. Learn More
