The Environmental Services Division of the Public Works Department is responsible for pursuing waste management strategies that emphasize more efficient use of resources through waste minimization/reduction, reuse, recycling and environmentally sound disposal strategies.
Did you know that the more you recycle and divert materials from landfill disposal the more you can reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHG)? Preventing waste and recycling can significantly reduce greenhouse gases produced in the mining, transporting and processing of raw materials for the manufacturing of goods. It is wasteful to throw away products after a single use. So make choices to reduce the amount of waste you generate and reuse or recycle, every day!
