Zero Waste Canada has launched.

Wood, metals, chemicals, minerals, organics, aggregates and other resources are valuable and should ever be burned or buried,” says Erich Schwartz, President of Greenomics and British Columbia-based ZWC director in a statement to media “It just doesn’t make sense. In a world of finite resources and diminishing renewable resources, we need to reduce what we take while continuously reusing and recycling the resources that we do use.”

Achieving zero waste is about much more than just recycling, ZWC says. Zero waste adheres to a hierarchy of highest and best use that aims to first prevent and reduce waste at the source by encouraging manufacturers to redesign products to be reusable, repairable and durable.
