We've come a long way in separating recyclables and compostable materials out of the landfill but we still have more progress to make to get to our goal of Zero Waste.
Visit BanffZeroWasteTrail.ca/Dashboard to view the zero waste dashboard, created in house by Vicente Frias, resource recovery team member. The dashboard reports how the whole community is doing and the progress the commercial and residential sector is making.
