Sustainability Story: Waste Wars at YVR

This month the YVR Environment Department kicked off YVR’s third annual award-winning Waste Wars — a 7-week long competition that challenges food and beverage tenants to sort their waste to help YVR’s goal of 50% waste reduction by 2020.

 

Every week, we head out to all our tenants’ kitchens, inspect their bins and allocate points. The better a tenant separates their waste, the more points they will receive as they compete for the coveted title of YVR’s 2017 Waste Wars Champion.

 

Through the support of our partners and initiatives like Waste Wars, YVR recycled and composted 2.15 of 4.22 million kilograms of terminal building waste in 2016, totaling an impressive 51 per cent diversion rate!

 

Stay tuned for more updates on Waste Wars 2017 and May the Best Bin Win!
