Big moves for less waste... in Stony Plain

Wow. The Town of Stony Plain has adopted their very own Wipe Out Waste program, with a lofty goal: divert 80% of waste from landfill by 2015.
Their Environmental Stewardship Strategy includes 3 planks:

  • recycling
  • composting & waste reduction
  • garbage limitation
Sounds like assertive action is reaping results. Stony Plain boasts the 3rd highest diversion-from-landfill of municipalities in the Capital Region.
What do you think? Do small towns have more chances to reduce waste than big cities?
