The City of Wetaskiwin is committed to conserving non-renewable resources by utilizing the 3 R's: Reduce, Reuse & Recycle.
Reduce, Reuse & Recycle
The City reduces unnecessary waste by supplying staff with dishes and silverware to use during lunch breaks. Glassware is also used throughout Wetaskiwin City Hall instead of Styrofoam cups.
The advent of paperless City Council meetings in 2011 is another great way the City reduced its use of paper.
When printing on paper is necessary, City staff are encouraged to use both sides of a sheet of paper. Most printers located in City offices are defaulted to print on both sides.
City employees either have their own designated recycling container, or have access to one nearby. Recyclable materials are picked up from each City building once a week by Public Works staff and are delivered to Wetaskiwin's Recycling Depot.
