With the many properties Turtles manages, proper recycling and composting is highly encouraged by implementing recycling systems and tenant awareness.
In our experience, many tenants do not recycle because:
- bins are not provided
- not sure of what goes where
- just not interested
One of the best recycling regimes can be found in Sweden. There is absolute zero waste from citizens, otherwise there are consequences to face for these misdeeds. Containers are washed and sorted, and residents dispose of items in their respective methods.
Recycling Bins in Sweden.
Ontario cities advocate recycling, and many programs are put in place to reflect this. Bins are offered at discounted costs, especially for buildings and more recently, garbage is only picked up on a bi-weekly basis. This has proven successful in the Niagara region, and hopefully Ontario may one day become a zero waste province like Sweden!
To find out if an item is recyclable, or how to dispose of it correctly, Niagara region has created a search engine here.
