WINNIPEG — Litter rates for empty beverage containers are decreasing across Manitoba as more people toss them into the recycle bin instead of the landfill.
New numbers from the Canadian Beverage Container Recycling Association (CBCRA) and its Recycle Everywhere program show both Winnipeg and Brandon deceased their litter rates by 74 and 87 percent, respectively, in 2017.
Recycle Everywhere was in Falcon Lake over the weekend in an effort to encourage Manitobans to recycle, well, everywhere, including the cottage.
A crew from Recycle Everywhere was joined by Manitoba Minister of Sustainable Development Cathy Cox for a barbecue in Falcon Lake Saturday where over around 300 Bin Bags were handed out to cottagers to use for collecting recyclables while at the lake.
WINNIPEG — Beverage containers recycled in the Exchange District have made up more than 100,000 pounds of recyclables in the last four years.
The Exchange District BIZ partnered with the Canadian Beverage Container Recycling Association’s (CBCRA) Recycle Everywhere program in June 2013. Seventy bins were placed on streets in the district at the time.
