Help Your Multi-Family Building Go Green with Trash Talk

I recently got an email from one of TrashTalk's sponsors, the Mount Pleasant Neighbourhood House about the call for a second round of applicants. Here are the details:

Trashtalk is a pilot project working with recycling champions in apartments, condos and co-ops to establish food scraps recycling and improve current recycling programs in Vancouver multi-family residences.

With the 2015 Metro Van ban on organics looming and Vancouver’s Greenest City Action Plan targeting new food scraps recycling as a key path to its Zero Waste goals, now is the time to sign up for Trashtalk.

Trashtalk is currently working with co-ops, condos and apartments in the West End  and Mount Pleasant but welcomes applications from anywhere in Vancouver.

There are lots of good reasons to participate including free assistance to plan and implement a food scraps recycling program and modest financial support to engage your neighbours. Check out our resource:  Six Reasons to Participate in Trashtalk

With the project first phase in full swing, Trashtalk welcomes more applications for its second phase intake. Deadline for more applications is September 16, 2013

  1. I've been trying to find a stainless steel countertop recycling container like the one in your post - any ideas where to buy? Thanks!

  2. Just to clarify, not like the one Oscar the Grouch is in! But the one from your PNE post...

    1. Bahaha! Yeah, pretty sure Oscar's isn't really countertop sized. Try Lee Valley Hardware:,33140 . They have one that looks near identical, plus a couple other varieties. :)
