Food Scraps Recycling: Making it the Norm for Businesses and Institutions

Sustainability Community Breakfast

Our next Sustainability Community Breakfast will take place Thursday, February 3, 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. at British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT) downtown Vancouver campus at 555 Seymour Street, Vancouver.

Studies show that nearly half of our garbage is made up of food scraps and other compostable materials. Join us to hear how businesses and organizations across the region are reducing food waste and embracing food scraps recycling, keeping hundreds of thousands of tonnes of compostable materials out of landfills.

Speakers:
Filippo DeLuca (Recycling Coordinator) / Tina Taylor (Food Services), British Columbia Institute of Technology
Brendan Chan and Cassandra Ly, Leadership Students, Windermere Secondary School, with Vagner Castilho, Sustainability Leadership Teacher
Trish Kelly, Director of Project Development, Discovery Organics

If you plan to attend please RSVP
