During event such as the Canada Day festivities, the Town of Canmore encourages organizers to aim for an 80% diversion rate in waste generated during the event. The Canada Day committee is taking these guidelines seriously! We believe it is important to leave as small of an environmental footprint as possible. With the help of Bow Valley Waste and a team of dedicated volunteers, we will work towards minimizing the amount of waste as much as possible. After looking at options to reduce the waste generated in the first place, we will work at sorting the unavoidable waste. It will be sorted and disposed of in an environmentally friendly manner.
If you would like to be part of the TZW (Toward Zero Waste) efforts, please fill out our volunteer application form and choose ”resource recovery” as your area of interest. It feels good to work for the environment! We are looking for volunteers who can give 4 hours of their time, either from 7-11am, or from 1-5pm.
