Zero Waste Cities: How do we get there?

Aug 31, 2021 by LetsTalkTrash

The road to Zero Waste is being paved, and in this episode, we look to cities like Victoria and Metro Vancouver for inspiration. We hear from Rory Took, a sustainability professional from Victoria about the many aspects of waste reduction and planning that are leading this city ever closer to its goal.

We also tune into a clip from a recent CBC radio interview by Grant Laurence with the Let's Talk Trash team and the qathet Regional District's manager of Strategic Initiatives and Assest Management, Mike Wall, featuring the up and coming Resource Recovery Centre project - located at the heart of the region and destined to bring the coastal community nearer to Zero Waste.

Rebroadcast: Pills, Butts & WasteWater

Jun 22, 2021 by LetsTalkTrash

Move over microplastics, there's a new villain in town. What have you flushed down the drain lately? Pills, cleaning products, paint from brushes, or even bacteria, fungi and metals, maybe?  Do these contaminants of emerging concern need to be better regulated? We talk with a City Councilor and informed concerned citizen about their efforts to do just that. 

We tap into the Hold Onto your Butts campaign as well, to hear about the unexpected consequences of tossing cigarette butts and what some towns are doing to offer a safer alternative.
