The Waste Reduction Week in Canada program is structured into seven themes. Our themes focus the discussion, promote achievements, and celebrate advancements in each area. Participants have the option to support areas that are most important to them or learn about a new issue.
The week kicks-off by introducing circular economy while celebrating broader circular economy initiatives and concepts. The weekdays engage Canadians on key waste management issues and material streams: textiles, e-waste, plastics, and food waste. The weekend encourages Canadians to extend the life of these products/materials through the sharing economy, swapping, and repairing. Champions and innovators of each theme are celebrated throughout the week and year.
