Today is the first day of Waste Reduction Week, and the first day of Recycling Week in Manitoba!
Our Minister of Conservation and Climate, Sarah Guillemard, has proclaimed the third week of October 2020 and each year moving forward as Recycling Week in Manitoba! This week coincides and will be celebrated at the same time as National Waste Reduction Week.
It provides an opportunity for government and others to showcase and celebrate the initiatives happening throughout the province that are contributing to the reduction of waste going to landfill. Manitoba is committed to becoming the cleanest and greenest province in Canada through ambitious waste diversion and recycling goals as we transition towards a circular economy.
