The Mayor’s Towering Challenge motivated building Property Managers, Superintendents, Owners, Boards, 3Rs Ambassador Volunteers and residents to improve waste diversion in apartments, condominiums and co-operatives.
Almost half of Toronto residents live in apartments, condos and co-ops, but they recycle and compost only 28% of their waste compared to 65% of waste in single-family homes. We all have a part to play to reach the City of Toronto’s goal of 70% diversion from landfill and the Mayor’s Towering Challenge could help us get there.
Even though the Challenge is over, we invite you to continue your excellent waste diversion efforts – or start now. For buildings with City of Toronto waste collection, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for posters, stickers, lobby displays, kitchen catchers, recycling bags, presentations, site visits and support.
