GET TO HALF
Get to Half @ Home
In Newfoundland and Labrador each person throws away about 2kg (4.5lbs) of waste every single day. That means that an average family of four will create about 56 kg (126lbs) of garbage in one week! It doesn't take much to realize that all that garbage adds up. And that's just one family.
Your family can make a difference. When you avoid making garbage in the first place, you don't have to worry about disposing of waste or recycling it later. It's easy to reduce your family's waste by changing some simple habits - in the kitchen, backyard, and basement, and even when grocery shopping and choosing items to bring into your home. MMSB's Get to Half at Home tips will help your family Get to Half.
