Where does THAT go? How to recycle in Waterloo Region
October 27, 2018 | 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm
Are you still confused about what’s recyclable or not?
Join us in this workshop with the Region of Waterloo’s expert on the ins and outs of blue box recycling, how to identify what is and what is not recyclable and what happens to the stuff we put inside our blue box!
As we strive for a greener and sustainable future, we will also discuss the future of recycling and long-term strategic direction for sustainable waste management in the region. We are so excited to offer this workshop as part of the Zero Waste Challenge in the month of October.
