A Community Where Nothing is Wasted
Register: nothingwasted.eventbrite.ca

Every day across the City of Victoria, over 120 tonnes of materials are disposed and sent to the landfill. This includes demolished buildings, uneaten food and paper packaging, and old clothes and furniture. Zero Waste Victoria was adopted in 2020 to tackle our waste challenges, with a target of 50% reduction in landfill disposal by 2040. Learn more about Zero Waste Victoria and how residents and visitors are making a difference in the City’s waste reduction efforts.
