Get involved!

Waste Reduction Week in Canada is calling on all Canadians to adopt more environmentally conscious choices.

Waste Reduction Week in Canada’s educational resources provide information and ideas to reduce waste in all facets of daily living. Reducing waste is one solution to the many environmental challenges we face: climate change, water pollution and the depletion of natural resources.

For Schools

School is the perfect place to practice waste reduction. Students who learn about waste in their classrooms gain good lifetime habits. And they teach their families how to minimize waste.

For Businesses

Businesses dedicated to waste reduction and environmental sustainability can save money, improve compliance with regulations and enhance customer trust.

For Communities

Municipalities dedicated to waste reduction in their own operations are well positioned to encourage residents to practice the 3Rs every day.
