Zero Waste Coach

Do you need recycling or organics support for your building, business, school or community group? The City’s Zero Waste Coach provides resources and support to help increase recycling and food scraps diversion. Our Zero Waste Coach can visit your building, business or school to assess your recycling needs, educate residents on proper recycling at strata meetings, lobby info sessions, or community events/meetings, and help you with signage and posters. Save money spent on garbage services and help reduce your waste!
