Trash to Treasure: Accelerating the Circular Economy

Trash to Treasure: Accelerating the Circular Economy

The Linear Economy seemed just fine, once upon a time … take materials from the earth, make it into something, use it and dispose of it when it’s done. Easy … if we had several habitable planets a hop away (not thus far), or a tiny and shrinking population (um, 7.5 billion people and counting = another nope). Enter the Circular Economy … a new, but actually very old idea of using, reusing, repurposing and recycling materials rather than piling up in landfill. Trash to treasure, and treasure again.

To dive in deep, I’m looking forward to tomorrow’s knowledge session, brought to you by our friends at The Recycling Council of Ontario. There are tons of topics on offer, including measuring/tracking/reporting on waste (to shrink it, you must track it), what’s happening in government regulations (something we all need help navigating), and my personal favorite … organics (I may be a touch biased as the session’s Facilitator). Lucky for you, it’s not too late to join in.

What? Accelerating Circular Economic Behaviour and Waste Reduction in the IC&I Sector (that’s “Industrial, Commercial and Institutional” for anyone playing Acronym Bingo)
