That's not Garbage!
Let's talk trash
We would love to meet with your business or community group (seniors, ESL, church, etc) and talk about how you can minimize what goes into our landfills.
You will learn about recycling at home and at work, composting and grasscycling. We will also talk about Eco Stations, our unique Reuse Centre, the world-famous Edmonton Waste Management Centre and how we are about to turn your household waste into methanol.
You pick the day, the evening or the weekend, and we will come and see you. Call 780-496-5404.
