Green Reason/720 Green Council Visit Wasteco



Green Reason accompanied the 720 Access Green Council on a tour of the Wasteco recycling facility in Brampton. Wasteco’s Orenda plant handles paper, cardboard, and organic food waste. Despite the impressive number of machines and employees sorting the recycling, the visit brought to light the amount of recycling that ultimately ends up in the landfill due to contamination from food and office waste. The experience impacted everyone on the importance of proper sorting of recyclables from other waste.
