Trashtalk Participants by the NumbersPosted: October 6, 2013
Participants so far include 7 residences in Mount Pleasant ranging from 35 to 184 units, 3 residences in the West End (15-148 units) and 1 in Kits (45 units). There are 7 strata residences, 2 co-ops and 2 rentals.
One of the interesting lessons learned to date from planning for food scraps recycling is the potential savings for waste related costs.
According to Adam Morton, one of our Recycling Champions in the West End:
“Simply preparing for the food scraps program, discovering how it can work best in our building, has shown us how we can save significant amounts from what we pay to have our garbage taken away. The exercise has paid off, independently of ecological considerations and compliance with anticipated regulations.”
Trashtalk still has openings for a few more residences. If you are interested in participating, Sign Up and enter your information. We will contact you shortly.
