It’s Waste Reduction Week

Happy Waste Reduction Week!

Waste Reduction Week 2021 – October 18th to 24th

Waste Reduction Week in Canada is celebrating its 20th anniversary with the theme Then – Now – Future.

The Recycling Council of Alberta is excited to once again celebrate individual and collective environmental commitments, efforts, and accomplishments while encouraging innovative ideas and solutions around waste reduction.

Each day of Waste Reduction Week and its associated theme is presented through the lens of its contribution to advancing a Circular Economy. As a relatively new concept in Canada, the theme days provide an opportunity to educate what is meant by the Circular Economy as each theme has its own story to tell. 

Today kicks offs by showcasing new and innovative circular economy stories and the organizations that are championing this new concept helping making linkages to how it advances resource efficiencies and waste reduction.
