Waste Reduction

Our periodic trash audits have identified some key items which dominate our waste stream.
Most notably:

  • Food & drink packaging.
  • Coffee Cups from drive-thru outlets and campus vendors.
  • Empty Water Bottles.

Our on-site coffee vendors offer price breaks for re-fillable containers. The Salmon-Arm Eco-Committe actualy distributed insulated coffee mugs to all students at the beginning of the school year.
All campus have been outfitted with water bottle refill stations to help encourage the re-use of personal water bottles.
