Okotoks Invites the Community to Participate in Waste Reduction Week

From the 20th to the 26th of October, various towns in Canada will be participating in Waste Reduction Week, a program that can be traced back since the 1980s. During its early years, recycling councils and environmental groups organized Waste Reduction Weeks on their own, with varying schedules. In 2001, however, these organizations came together and pooled their resources and networks together to create one national Waste Reduction Week—the one we know today.

Waste Reduction Week in Okotoks

Known as a green and sustainable community, Okotoks is encouraging all residents to take part in the Waste Reduction Week programs. Such programs community members can sign up for include:

  • Curb It, a subscription-based curb-side recycling pick up
  • Cut n’ Call, a yard and branch waste collection program

Do you have items you no longer use or recyclable waste piled up in your garage?

  • Drop off your unused electronics at the Okotoks Recycling Centre
  • Take your recyclables to the 24-hour Drop-off at the Wal-Mart parking lot
  • Bring unused items to the Regional Landfill’s Salvage Centre where other people may find use for those items
  • You can also deliver scrap metal, household hazardous waste, batteries, tires, and the like to the Regional Landfill

Home to houses built by renowned Calgary home builders, Okotoks is a budding town that is now becoming a popular destination for individuals and families seeking a community-centered and green community.

The town’s active participation in Waste Reduction Week is one proof that members of the community truly care about their home by making sure that it is kept clean and sustainable.
