Single-Use Items Reduction Strategies Workshop
March 26, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm$250
The Recycling Council of Alberta is pleased to announce a workshop on Single-Use Items Reduction Strategies that we are delivering in partnership with Waste Free Edmonton.
Increasingly, communities, governments of all levels and the public at large are targeting single-use items as a source of concern to environmental impacts such as litter and recycling challenges. This workshop will feature organizations that have made efforts to address the impacts of single-use items in their communities, including Blue Bayfield, an organization from Bayfield, Ontario, of concerned citizens with a mission to reduce the use of disposable items and prevent plastic and pollutants from entering their Great Lake and waterways.
The workshop will be hosted in Wetaskiwin, a city who is currently introducing a plastic checkout bag bylaw. They will be sharing their experiences, as will other municipalities who have, or are planning, bylaws addressing single use items.
We hope you will join us to learn more about the opportunities to address single-use items. Visit https://recycle.ab.ca/workshop/single-use-items-reduction-strategies-workshop/ for further details and to register.
