What can we do to reduce?

Before you recycle, try to reduce and reuse first. Here are some simple steps you can take to cut back on waste and your use of plastics:

Reduce

  • Reduce your use of single-serve containers (e.g.: items such as plastic forks, straws and take-out containers)
  • Buy products with less packaging
  • Bring cloth bags with you when you shop for groceries
  • Plan out your meals

Reuse

  • Take reusable lunch containers, coffee mugs and water bottles
  • Buy items second-hand
  • Fix what you can before replacing items
  • Donate items you no longer use to charity
  • Visit the Recycle Depot and participate in the Treasure Hunts prior to the Large Item Pick-Ups to take or leave something (ask attendant for details)
