Business

Going green is great for the environment and great for business.

Businesses and organizations play a key role in protecting our environment and helping ensure a cleaner and more sustainable future by making small, simple changes to the way we conduct our daily business. Whether you are front-line staff, management, tradesperson or labourer – we all play a part in helping reduce waste on the job.

In 2008, over 190 thousand tonnes of waste were produced from non-residential sources (Statistics Canada).

Since 60% percent of our province’s waste comes from non-residential sources (industrial, commercial and institutional waste) businesses must be engaged in better waste management practices.
