Yesterday Vancouver celebrated the immense progress made towards our zero waste goals as part of the Greenest City Action Plan. Since 2010, Vancouver has reduced the amount of solid waste sent to landfill or incinerator by 23% – almost halfway towards the 2020 target.
We have worked hard to achieve this and recognize how far we have to go to become a true zero waste community. We've stated the destination and now we are starting to chart the course to get there. This will involve all areas of the community – we can't get there alone.
