The City of Brantford conducted a waste audit at their annual Canada Day festival, which sees about 10,000 attendees pass through the gate each year. Over the past two years, the festival has implemented a recycling and organics program which has increased diversion rates from 0% to 54.6%! Green Team volunteers from the festival weighed the overall amounts of waste, recycling and compost that was generated at the event. The festival also had volunteers stationed at the containers to help attendees to sort their materials, and promoted the new waste management program from the stage.
