Remembering the 3Rs
The Squamish-Lillooet Regional District has proclaimed Oct. 20-26 as Waste Reduction Week.
The week is intended to raise public consciousness about the environmental and social consequences of waste. Its designed to get people thinking about different ways to reduce their waste.
The week first began in Canada two years ago and since then it has been gaining in popularity. Local and regional governments, businesses and non-profits are all getting involved in activities during the Waste Reduction Week to showcase opportunities for reducing waste and conserving our resources.
It would be a good time for everyone to review the 3Rs reduce, reuse and recycle.
In recognition of Waste Reduction Week the SLRD will promote ways we can all be less wasteful with our community resources.
