Nanaimo Trash Talk Newsletter Out This Week

Click HERE to download the PDF version of the Newsletter

The City's biannual Garbage, Recycling and Green Bin Newsletter, Trash Talk being delivered to your door this week.

The main item covered in the newsletter is the issue of the waste sent to landfill needlessly. It is estimated that 1,000 tonnes of waste is sent to landfill each year by Nanaimo residents that could actually have been recycled or composted.

Other topics covered include: items that you may not be aware are recycleable, your options for yard waste disposal, new beverage container recycling cans coming to downtown areas and parks, free little libraries, and information on the reminder tags that are sometimes left on your garbage can by your refuse collector.

* The Trash Talk newsletter will be delivered to all homes in Nanaimo

* We would love to hear how you think we are doing, if you have any questions or items you would like us to cover in the next issue please get in touch.

"The Trash Talk newsletter aims to help residents stay informed of the latest news in the world of waste in the harbour city. I hope residents find it interesting and useful and that they perhaps learn something they didn't know about recycling and composting. There are little changes we can all make in our homes on a daily basis that will add up to a big change in Nanaimo. My goal here is to reduce the amount of waste being sent to landfill. " - Charlotte Davis Manager of Sanitation and Recycling City of Nanaimo
