Waste & Recycling
There’s no denying that with our modern lifestyles comes a certain amount of waste. But every decision we make—from what we buy to what we divert from landfills—can make a big difference. “Reduce, reuse, recycle” has been a mantra for decades now. So we all know and understand the benefits of living a life with a smaller environmental impact.
In Fredericton, residents have the support of the city in their efforts to minimize their waste impact. The city’s recycling curbside pickup program and recycling depots make it easy to divert plastics, paper, and metal from the landfill. And the city’s partnership with Greener Village gives residents support in their composting efforts. The City also collects compostable yard waste twice per year. The waste that’s left is collected and handled by the city in a responsible, sustainable manner.
When you choose to buy products with less wasteful packaging, separate recyclables for collection, and start composting, you don’t just help your city by minimizing the garbage that goes to the landfill—you make a global impact for the better.
