LESS IS MORE
It’s true what they say – less is more – especially when it comes to waste. The less organic and recyclable waste we send to landfills, the more we’ll have to create compost for parks and carbon neutral fuel for environmentally friendly operations. Together, we can make the new Rethink Waste Collection Program a success.
Thank you for you continued patience and commitment as we begin this new green journey together.
THE WASTE REDUCTION CHALLENGE
We are changing our Waste Collection Program to achieve 70% regional waste diversion goal by 2015.
By adopting good habits now, we can protect our environment for the future.
THE RETHINK WASTE COLLECTION PROGRAM
This October, we will begin collecting combined kitchen and yard waste in new green carts, allowing us to convert organic waste into carbon neutral fuel.
Since November 2010, we’ve been conducting a pilot study with the help of 2,000 Surrey households to test the carts. The results speak for themselves: 90% of pilot households support the new program, and more importantly, experienced a 50% reduction in garbage with the use of their organics cart.
