CBC News is currently running a news series about recycling called Reduce, Reuse, Rethink. They’re examining why our communities are at a turning point and exploring ways to recycle better. The first article, Your lifestyle is making blue box recycling unsustainable, was published yesterday. As part of this series, CBC has set up a group page on Facebook to encourage dialogue and sharing. It’s a closed group so you have to request membership. There is a lot of good conversation going on there…maybe we can share some insights here and keep the conversation going after the series ends!
This is really timely, I had to make a u-turn the other day in Markham and it turns out I had wandered into a Textiles drop-off cum recycling facility. Check out the link to their program here for one of those items that many of us seem to have trouble figuring out how not to just toss them into the garbage bin.
