Create memories, not garbage.


In support of Metro Vancouver’s waste reduction targets outlined in the Integrated Solid Waste and Resource Management Plan, the Create Memories, Not Garbage campaign focuses on reducing waste during the holiday season. The campaign encourages residents to celebrate the holidays in ways that produce less waste, such as giving experiences or gifts that last, wrapping gifts with less, using sustainable decorations, and avoiding food waste.

Metro Vancouver undertakes communications and behaviour change campaigns to support zero waste objectives, waste reduction and diversion targets established in the Integrated Solid Waste and Resource Management Plan, in partnership with member municipalities.
