Recycling & Zero Waste Working Forum – Territory Wide Working Forum
April 11, 2018 - April 13, 2018
The Yukon Territory is working towards reducing waste materials in our landfills and achieving Zero Waste goals. Morrison Hershfield’s own Forest Pearson, Senior Geological Engineer, will be joining other panelists to discuss landfill risks, and Veronica Bartlett, Solid Waste Planner, will discuss Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) during the Territory Wide Working Forum. The Recycling and Zero Waste Forum provides the opportunity to address solid waste issues within our communities, and the opportunity to learn and share. The forum is organized by the community initiative Zero Waste Yukon with over 20 Stakeholder organizations.
How do we do Our Part?
FUN FACT: The Morrison Hershfield Whitehorse office is a “Zero Waste Office” that produces virtually no garbage. Other than the bathroom, there are no garbage cans in the office!
