Every October Ecology North, in partnership with GNWT Environment and Natural Resources, hosts a number of events in recognition of National Waste Reduction Week. Past events have included film screenings and panel discussions on waste reduction. In 2014 a ‘Fix it Fair’ was held in both Hay River and Yellowknife, during which residents could bring damaged goods and be paired with a skilled volunteer to repair them! Ecology North has also partnered with Waste Reduction Week Canada to host the ‘Recycle My Cell’ school challenge in the NWT as part of their national campaign.
