The trucks rumble down the lanes of our cities and towns, carrying away the week’s garbage. The few bags set out don’t appear to be much, but more than 2.4 million tonnes of solid waste goes to Alberta’s municipal landfills every year. Municipalities are continuously challenged to make room for this tremendous amount of waste, some of it coming from commercial and construction activity, but much of it coming from our homes. This booklet will help you make better decisions about what you buy and how you dispose of it.
