Let’s Talk Trash: Waste Management Open House

trash-post

This is a topical post for me and anyone who had a neighbour move recently.   Our ‘one big bag per week’ of garbage has been sitting by the back door for a very long time as the dumpsters in my alley are full of unwanted stuff from the aforementioned moving neighbour.   So I was intrigued to read about the City of Regina’s new Waste Management Plan.

I’m still reading it over, but what they’ve developed is a long term plan for dealing with all the garbage that we all create.  There is an online questionnaire where you can give feedback and a Waste Plan Report that you can read.  (I don’t think you need to read the report to answer the questionnaire, but some wider context might be nice!)

There are also a series of Trash Talking Open Houses that started last week and continue through November.  Some nearby events are November 24 (3-6pm, City Hall) and December 2 (5:30 – 8pm, Cathedral Neighbourhood Centre)  But there are others too.

Have you been following this?  What are your thoughts on dealing with trash in Regina?   Let us know in the comments.
