#WasteWednesday April 14, 2021

Posted on April 14, 2021 at 10:30 AM by Tracy Wasylow

Let’s talk about a couple of the three Rs — Reduce and Reuse!
On average, every resident of the Town of Bonnyville, City of Cold Lake, and M.D. of Bonnyville dispose of 4.7 lbs of waste per day. That’s 1,700 pounds per person per year!
With the recycling landscape ever changing, the biggest impact residents can have on their waste footprint is to reduce the amount of waste they create.
Reusing materials, composting, and freecycling at M.D. Landfills are great ways to reduce the amount of waste we create.
If you have items that are in good working order or leftover materials from a project, you can bring them to the freecycle shed at one of the seven M.D. Landfill Transfer Stations for someone else to make use of, and that way, you're both reducing AND reusing. It's a win-win!

Please do not leave items at the gates of the landfills or at the community bin sites.
