Waste Reduction Week: Be Part of the Solution

October 16 – 22, 2017: The third week in October is Waste Reduction Week in Canada – the annual week-long celebration that empowers and engages individuals, municipalities, businesses and schools to lead by example and take action to reduce waste.

Go to http://www.wrwcanada.com to find out more about WRW, register an event, or proclaim Waste Reduction Week in your municipality, school or business. Popular events include: waste-free lunches in both schools and offices, hosting waste collection drives (e.g., hazardous waste, textiles, or electronics), and free documentary screenings and information sessions.

New for 2017, each day of Waste Reduction Week will have an associated theme. Participants will have the option to support areas that are most important to them or learn about a new issue. For more information on themes download the program guide: http://wrwcanada.com/sites/wrwcanada.com/files/WRW%202017%20Program%20Guide.pdf
