On Thursday, October 20, 2005, the Recycling Council of Ontario will host the Ontario Waste Minimization Awards. This awards gala is the culmination of all provincial activities that will take place during Waste Reduction Week in Canada from October 17th to October 23rd.
“‘Too Good to Waste’ is the driving principle and a constant reminder of the value of the environment as the irreplaceable element for all life on our planet,” says the event website (visit www.rco.on.ca).
“Over the many years of supporting Waste Reduction Week in Canada, the RCO has witnessed a strong and steady growth in awareness of what waste truly means to our world both at home and abroad. Driven by a need to protect a fragile environment and conserve shrinking natural resources, organizations at all levels have made waste management and sustainability their goal.
“Waste minimization is the cornerstone of global environmental sustainability. It is our privilege to recognize those Ontario entities that have gone the distance to create viable programs in waste minimization/elimination. Leading by example is the surest way to educate all society about the disastrous consequences of uncontrolled waste and to communicate the existence of new, viable alternatives.
“The October 20th Awards will pay tribute to all those Ontario organizations, corporations, municipalities, educational institutions and individuals who are making a difference in our world for those who inhabit it now and for those generations to come.
To register for the awards gala, please contact the RCO Events Manager at 416-657-2797 ext 4 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
