Trashtalk Champions Network to Share Learning

Trashtalk teams from all participating residences recently met to enjoy a delicious feast and talk trash. The event was designed for teams to meet and share information to date. Topics for conversation included research about different food scraps hauler options, specific challenges in getting a food scraps program up and running in their buildings, and engagement strategies to encourage their neighbours to participate.

As Harvinder Aujala, Information Services Manager at the Recycling Council of BC (one of Trashtalk’s Partners) observed, it was inspiring to listen to the enthusiasm and hard work of local Recycling Champs leading the Trashtalk project. These are all volunteers putting in their own time to make positive changes in their communities.

Several residences are kicking off their food scraps programs in December with more set to join in January 2014.
