Recycling in our Region
In 2003, we sent 477 kg of waste per capita to the landfill and diverted 57 per cent to recycling facilities. Today we dispose of 350 kg per capita and divert 70 per cent of our waste for recycling and composting. Your efforts are moving the RDN closer to its long term vision of "zero waste" which the RDN Board set as its target a dozen years ago.
