Waste Reduction Week Events

Register an Event

Organizing an event during Waste Reduction Week in Canada is an excellent way to engage your community in the 3Rs and waste reduction. Businesses, schools, government, or organizations can register their waste reduction event. Popular events include: waste-free lunches in both schools and offices, hosting waste collection drives (hazardous waste, textiles, or electronics), and free documentary screenings and information sessions.

You can now register your 2017 Waste Reduction Week event!
