October 19-25th is waste reduction week in Toronto! Waste Reduction Week in is held every October as a reminder of the ways everyone can reduce the amount of waste going to landfill and to raise awareness about the importance of sustainable consumption.
Every year, the City of Toronto manages over 900,000 tonnes of waste. This garbage maintenance requires money, energy, and resources and takes up valuable landfill space. When there is less waste produced, the less there is to manage.
