The City of Vancouver began with a target of reducing solid waste going to the landfill or incinerator by 50% from 2008 levels by 2020. In 2013, they were almost half way to their goal, having reduced waste by 23%. Busch Systems was able to help with our innovative container solutions. Vancouver uses the Waste Watcher Series across several counties, colleges, school districts, health units and more to provide a consistent look and feel to their collection programs. This means that users in any of these locations know what to expect when trying to recycle. For their outdoor needs, the City of Vancouver worked with Busch Systems to create a new custom container that met all of their functional and design needs. They knew what they wanted, and Busch knew how to make what they needed. Some consistent items (like color and verbiage) allows the repetition found in the Waste Watchers to extend to the new outdoor container.
