Recycling Checklist

"We in Saskatchewan are committed to a healthy environment and a sustainable economy. Along with that is a growing recognition that we need to get past the "throw away" mentality. In fact, we now understand that much of what used to be called "waste" is a resource that can be re-used".

Beyond Paper and Plastic Recycling

Reduce, reuse, recycle - sounds simple right? So simple that recycling bins at home and in the office are becoming a familiar sight, with more people recycling their used paper and plastic bottles. But did you know that you can take your recycling beyond the curb and recycle or reuse just about anything that you put your mind to? All you need to do is think outside the box - and in this case we mean quite literally the recycling box!
