Waste Diversion Success Stories

Waste Diversion Success Stories

Partners in Project Green’s Material Exchange program facilitates the exchange of material generated within our stakeholder community (businesses and non-profit groups) to divert waste from landfill, move towards a circular economy, and strengthen community ties.  

Browse through the case studies provided here, which showcase our members’ commitments to a circular economy and giving back. If you would like to see your organization featured in a case study, please contact Darlene Coyle at Darlene.Coyle@trca.ca
