Celebrating Waste Reduction Week

To celebrate this week we have a selfie contest. We are asking people to post a selfie showing how you reduce waste on twitter, facebook, and Instagram and use the #wrwstjohns.

We also have numerous presentations taking place all week in schools.

We are holding our First Waste Reduction Fair on Saturday October 21 from 10:00 to 4:00pm at the Botanical Garden. The tool library, Island Composting and more will be providing information on ways to reduce your waste.

We will also be holding our second last Backyard Composting Information Session on Saturday from 10:30 to 11:45 at the Garden. If you are curious about creating Black Gold; join us on Saturday.
