We're developing a zero waste plan for managing the flow of resources and garbage in the coming years, and we need your help.
Under the Greenest City Action Plan, we have set a target to reduce solid waste going to the landfill or incinerator by 50% from 2008 levels.
To achieve this goal, we are committed to:

Dispose of items the right way. Learn what goes in your garbage bin.
Learn more about recycling in your home.
Food isn't garbage. Learn more about food scraps recycling and what other items go in your Green Bin.

Test your waste sorting skills and see if you can pass multiple levels while building your own digital park!
