Did you know? In Canada, we waste approximately 40% of our food. This waste is the equivalent to $27 billion! Although we may not like to admit it, we all waste food! On a global level, 1/3 of all food produced gets lost or wasted in food production and consumption.
Each tonne of paper recycled saves 17 trees from being cut down, 7,000 gallons of water, 463 gallons of oil and 3.3 cubic yards of landfill space. It's important for us to reduce our waste footprint.
Recycling saves valuable resources, energy and money while reducing the greenhouse gases produced by landfills. Recycling an old can into a new one uses 95% less energy.
Landfill is the last option for waste – please ensure that materials you place in this bin cannot be recycled elsewhere.
