Zero Waste is an international movement concerned with moving towards a sustainable society that views waste as a resource. Focusing on reducing human’s environmental footprint by minimizing the amount of waste that must be landfilled/incinerated through reduction, reuse, recycling, product redesign, composting and other actions.
The bins include 3-4 containers at each station: Mixed Containers, Mixed Paper, Landfill, and Soft Plastics. In all of the washrooms/fitness centre you will see a Paper Towel only bin as well as a small garbage bin. Please take a moment when you are at WPGCC to familiarize yourselves with the bins and what goes in each one.
Thanks everyone in helping Vancouver become the Greenest City by 2020!
