Journey To Sustainability: Household Waste Audit Workshop

January 16, 2020 @ 6:45 pm - 9:00 pm


REAL’s Journey to Sustainability Committee invites you to come out and learn how you can perform a household waste audit.

The meeting is free and open to anyone who wants to slap on some gloves and dig into exactly what is being thrown out in their home. All it takes is your paper and plastic bins, a garbage can, compost container and a sample garbage bag from your home to get started. Don’t forget those gloves and an apron for protection!

Vanessa Bernicky, environmental coordinator with the Town of Smiths Falls will be joined by two fellow engineering technologists working in Drummond/North Elmsley and the Town of Perth to clarify the how-to’s of a waste audit, as well as updates to the world of recycling.

Tony Mack of Perth will touch on his town’s decision to operate a compost program and all that goes into this from curb side to end product.

This is a wonderful opportunity to reduce your environmental impact and have your questions answered by local pros. Not to mention saving you money at the curb!

Join us at the information session to be held at Trinity United Church in Smiths Falls on
