In 2019, the City of Owen Sound sent 1,880.94 tonnes of garbage to landfill. If the average garbage bag weighs 15 pounds, that’s the equivalent of more than a quarter of a million garbage bags making their way into landfill! Read 2019 OS Waste Management Report.
Also, 1,853.50 tonnes of blue box recycling material was collected. With complicated recycling rules and lower global demand for many plastics, waste companies are not able to sell it all off for re-use. Only about 10% of what is put in our blue box is actually recycled. You guessed it… as much as 90% could be going into landfill! See The Owen Sound Recycling Guide
