VR Halifax - Divert NS - Waste Reduction Week

It's Waste Reduction Week in Canada and here's your reminder, the Plastic Bags Reduction Act will take effect on October 30! 

That means businesses will no longer be able to provide single-use plastic shopping bags at the checkout. Single-use plastic bags are being banned to encourage waste reduction at the source and to help keep plastic out of our environment and landfills.

Visit Virgin Radio on Instagram this Monday and you could pick up a $100 Visa Gift Card plus eco-friendly swag from Divert NS.


Waste Reduction Week in Canada is a year-round program, focused on the principles of circular economy, resource efficiency, and waste reduction. The program’s primary purpose is to celebrate our environmental efforts and achievements while encouraging new innovative ideas and solutions. The celebratory nature of the campaign is what motivates learning and behaviour change.

The program’s educational resources and “take action” messaging empower all Canadians to adopt more environmentally conscious choices. Waste Reduction Week in Canada further provides information and ideas to reduce waste in all facets of daily living, creating the solutions to the many environmental challenges we face including climate change, water pollution and preservation of natural resources.
