Getting to Waste Zero
A study conducted on the Halifax Waterfront measured the effectiveness of the Bigbelly System at diverting organics and recyclables from the waste stream. “The public spaces recycling program along the Halifax Harbourwalk has been highly successful and we are proud to engage in this progressive, green initiative” said Colin MacLean, President & CEO, Waterfront Development Corp.
The visitor experience has improved and recycling makes our waste management incredibly efficient. Recycling rates, especially for beverage containers, were significant at 95% diversion after just three months
explained John Zupo, President, Nestlé Waters Canada. “The combined diversion rate for the container and paper streams was also impressive, with a diversion rate of 83% of total containers and paper generated.”
