Every year, in Metro Vancouver, we throw away nearly 1.5 million tonnes of garbage.
How do we make less, recycle and reuse more, responsibly dispose or extract energy from those wastes we cannot divert, and collectively reduce our impacts on where we live?
The way we manage our waste is changing. Metro Vancouver has a plan for the region, and there’s something in it for everyone. It’s more than just using the blue box better.
