The time could be coming that you have to pay a new fee to have your organic waste picked up at the curb.
The city is looking at adding a green cart.
It would cost you somewhere between $55-to-$100 a year, depending on what type of compost is included in the program.
Winnipeggers already pay an extra $50 a year on their water bill for garbage and recycling pickup.
Right now, this is still just an idea. Public consultations will be held next month, with a final vote at city council expected in the spring.
If it does go through, there would be no opt-out for homeowners: everyone gets a cart. But even if it is approved, this would be 3-5 years away from being fully implemented.
