Happy Earth Day!!

The Waste Resources and Diversion Management department would like to wish the residents of Southgate a Happy Earth Day!!
How do you contribute to the earth? 
When you place your green cart at the curb with leftovers, garden clean out and household dust bunnies these organics are taken to the Townships composting location and are broken down to make compost, which essentially means you are putting back into the earth.
When you place items in your blue cart, they are taken to a sorting facility and each type of item is then sent to a location where they produce another item out of the blue cart material.  You are contributing to the earth by not placing these items into the waste cart / landfill.
