Waste Reduction Week Events

Step 1. Plan an event

Organizing waste reduction events is an excellent way to engage your community in the 3Rs and waste reduction. Any organization, school, community, or business can register an 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.

Step 2. Register your event in the Waste Reduction Week events Directory

Register your event so that people across Canada find your event and attend it. We'll also help promote your event to our audiences.

Step 3. Promote!

Promotion is key for a successful event. Please check back in Summer 2018 for promotional resources for this year's program.  

In the meantime, start sharing your event on social media by using the hashtag #WasteReductionWeek

Step 4. Submit your results

New for 2018 is an events results form. After your event has occured, you'll have the option of submitting some final results. More information coming soon!
