Waste Reduction Week in Canada | Waste Reduction Week in Canada

Waste Reduction Week in Canada is a year-round campaign focused on the principles of the circular economy, resource efficiency, and waste reduction. The goal of the campaign is to raise awareness while encouraging new innovative ideas and solutions. We recognize our environmental efforts and achievements during this week-long celebration the third week of October every year.

Join Canadians from coast to coast to coast as we discuss, share and celebrate what we are doing to enhance and protect our environment.

Waste Reduction Week in Canada 2020

To further recognize important pillars of a circular economy, the Waste Reduction Week program theme has been adjusted slightly for 2020.
