Did you know that October is Circular Economy Month? Circular Economy Month is a month-long nationwide public awareness campaign committed to waste reduction, resource conservation and community education for sustainable living.
As part of Circular Economy Month, the Town of Montreal West will be hosting its first Zero Waste Challenge. This initiative is part of the Town’s collective effort to strive for zero waste and increase the rate of residual materials diverted from landfill.
Call for participants
The Town is looking for households to participate in the challenge for 2 weeks. This experience will be an opportunity to learn best practices in waste management and begin the transition into a zero waste lifestyle.
For the last 2 weeks of October, participating households will commit to weighing their household waste (excluding recycling and compost) every week and are invited to attend workshops aimed at better understanding the waste they produce and collectively learning about ways to minimize it.
Everyone is invited to take part in this opportunity and contribute to protecting our environment. Households interested in participating in the challenge have until October 5th to apply by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Zero Waste Challenge”.
