From the Mayor's Desk:
Waste Reduction Week: October 16-22
Sioux Lookout mayor Doug Lawrance has proclaimed the week of October 16-22 as Waste Reduction Week in Sioux Lookout.
Waste Reduction Week in Canada is a unique program focused on the principles of the circular economy, resource efficiency, and waste reduction. It also celebrates our environmental efforts and achievements while encouraging new innovative ideas and solutions.
As part of the Canada wide initiative, the Municipal Environment Committee invites the public to join a week long virtual meeting on the Municipality of Sioux Lookout Facebook Page where community members can share their best practices for reducing waste at home and work. On October 16, look for the posts and comment or add ideas.
There are many great ideas on the net, but we are looking for tried and true advice to help us all keep waste reduction at the forefront of our thoughts and daily habits.
Our event is posted on the official site: http://wrwcanada.com/en as well as resources, challenges, and information about sponsors who plan to make a difference.
Let’s all join the conversation to reduce waste.
Respectfully submitted, Anne Saltel
