Waste 2019

In 2019, over 1,631 tonnes of material was recycled at LHSC! This was completed through many different avenues including our new Organics Program, Shredded Paper, Single-Stream Recycling and E-Waste Collection. We continuously look for new recycling methods to increase our diversion rate from landfills.
