Waste Management Resources

Posted by Rachael B-I on October 11th, 2018

Hello Everyone,

Thank you for all of your fantastic questions. Both Alexis and I were very impressed by the professionalism and pragmatic approach of every group. Keep up the awesome work. 

I have included the Water Bottle Ban How-To under 3B. Where is Our Waste Exercise, and in the resources. 

And to answer Burnaby's Request for more info on our recycling programs. We recycle almost everything with our waste hauler Waste Control Services (WCS) except for the gloves that are recycled by Blue Planet Recycling in Langley, BC, and Writing Instruments/ Pens that are taken to Staples as a part of a TerraCycle program.

Next week we will be discussing more about the distribution of plastic through the environment and will be joined by two plastic researchers from the Pollution Tracker team.
