About

A large part of a household’s garbage is usually food and its packaging. Try to reduce packaging by buying in bulk and using refillable containers at local bulk/health food stores. Refuse excess packaging when you can.

Use fresh food (from farmers’ market when in season) and buy only what you can use. When at the supermarket, choose locally grown produce whenever possible. Not only will you be getting fresher and tastier produce, you will be supporting local farmers and reducing the environmental impact when products are shipped from the southern U.S., Central and South America and China.

You can compost all your leftover organics in a home composter. To help get you started, the City of Brockville provides this composting guide: http://city.brockville.on.ca/solidwasteregulations/index.cfm?ID=836

Excess food can be donated to your local Food Bank or Community Kitchen.
