During the last Datacall process to Waste Diversion Ontario, the Municipality of Meaford diverted 3,300 pounds of plastic film for recycling: just over a 1½ tons of plastic. A volunteer program of which to be very proud.
At the Municipality of Meaford’s 2015 RE-Use & ECO-Fair, the Grey Bruce Sustainability Network publicized the success of the Municipality of Brockton’s (which includes Walkerton) 2014 plastic film recycling pilot project, a program similar to our own. The population of Brockton is almost the same size as the Municipality of Meaford. In their first year, they diverted 6,000 pounds or 3 tons of plastic film.
