Why zero waste ?
In Hamilton, we produce an estimate of 245,700 tonnes of waste each year – approximately 120,099 tonnes is sent to landfill and 125,600 tonnes are diverted (to recycling or composting).
Our unwanted and discarded items go to Hamilton’s main landfill site in Glanbrook.
All the products we buy, consume and dispose require energy and resources.
The 5 R’s: Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Rot and Recycle can be a helpful guide for making zero waste choices that protect water and land.
At Green Venture we want to create a greener, cleaner city by providing resources to help you reduce waste.
