Reduce – Reuse – Recycle (3Rs) Helpers Needed

The 3Rs Ambassador Program Comes To Leaside Towers!

The City of Toronto has launched the 3Rs Ambassador Program to increase the Reduce – ReUse – Recycle (3Rs) rates in apartment buildings and condos across the city. While many of our residents do use the recycling facilities in our buildings – we can always do better!

That is why the newly formed 3Rs Committee is looking for people to join the 3Rs effort by becoming:

  • A 3Rs Ambassador (3 training hours, followed by ongoing efforts)
  • A building or floor rep (on-call; 1 to 2 hours/week)

Why Join the Effort?

  • Help the environment
  • Reduce our buildings’ garbage costs
  • Get to know our neighbours
  • Help the City reach the waste diversion target of 70%
  • Meet people who are passionate about waste management
  • Earn volunteer hours – especially for our young people

If we can get enough 3Rs Ambassador volunteers, we can arrange a training session here. Meanwhile, the next official training session will take place on May 3 from 1 to 4 p.m.
