On Friday, November 19, 8th grader and Westmount resident Kelsey Li walked her neighbourhood with the Public Works’ environment team to encourage residents to participate in the food waste collection programme.
Kelsey reached out to the City because she had noticed that some of her neighbours didn’t have a green bin. She understands the importance of recuperating and reusing waste instead of sending it to landfill. She wanted to encourage her neighbours to participate in the collection and help them obtain their green bins.
Thanks to Kelsey, three houses were added to the food waste collection!
