Raven Recycling is a proud supporter of Waste Reduction Week in Canada. Visit www.wrwcanada.com to learn more!

Waste Reduction Week (WRW) in Canada was developed in 2001 by a coalition of 13 recycling councils and sister organizations from across Canada and is delivered each October by the same group. The program’s goal is to inform Canadians about the environmental and social ramifications of wasteful practices. WRW uses its “take action” messaging to empower all Canadians to adopt more environmentally conscious choices. Waste Reduction Week provides Canadians with information and ideas to reduce waste in all facets of daily living, creating solutions to the many environmental challenges we face.

2017 Recap

In October 2017, Waste Reduction Week united Canadians over the course of seven days to raise awareness and take action on waste, and we’re proud to share that it was our most captive year to date.
Here in the Yukon, Zero Waste Yukon hosted a free film screening and coordinated a classroom waste audit contest for Yukon schools. Raven Recycling hosted a public waste audit at Yukon College to dissect the college waste stream and help guide the school towards Zero Waste!
Schools, governments, businesses and individuals across Canada took part in the campaign like never before by adopting new and traditional approaches to the 3Rs, celebrating waste reduction champions and innovators, sharing on social media, and participating in events all across the country.
For Waste Reduction Week in Canada 2018 we would like to continue working with municipalities to engage residents, keep the campaign top of mind in October, and highlight the importance of recycling and resource efficiency as we continue our transition to the circular economy.
