Environment Protection Office invites the community to Talk Trash


The Kahnawą:ke Environment Protection Office (KEPO) is pleased to announce ′Let′s Talk Trash,′ a Waste Management Consultation Session,  on Wednesday, February 6th at the Golden Age Club beginning at 6pm.

KEPO representatives will present a Kahnawą:ke Waste Management Plan for community feedback. The plan addresses what Kahnawą:ke, as a community, can do to better handle household waste in order to meet established standards, protect the environment and lower removal costs.

"Waste management is anything that is to be thrown away in Kahnawą:ke," said Alana Kane of the Environment Office. "Whether it′s the actual garbage pickup, what goes in your recycling bin or organic waste, we want to make sure each gets disposed of in the proper place."

Information will be provided to breakdown the different components of household waste, such as solids, recyclables and organics. A brief thirty minute presentation will be followed by food and refreshments, prizes and giveaways. Booths will also be set up to provide information on the various aspects of waste management.

"If you have questions about what is recyclable, how to compost organic material, or how the Transfer Depot is intended to operate, we′ll have booths where you can find the answers," continued Kane. "If you′ve ever had any questions about anything waste related, this is a great opportunity to come out and talk trash."
