Northern Communities face unique challenges in Waste Management. Producers of food and goods transport materials into our remote communities, but local governments are responsible for dealing with the waste that is left behind. Transporting waste out of communities is expensive and innovative solutions are needed to help our local governments keep waste out of their landfills!
Ecology North was instrumental in helping the City of Yellowknife establish their current recycling program and continues to offer assistance and recommendations to the City on the program. We look forward to helping the City of Yellowknife increase their overall waste diversion and to working with other communities in the NWT to find effective ways to keep waste out of their landfills!
