Environmental & information Researcher (Recycling Revisited)
(Community Development Halton, Volunteer Halton)
|Comments||We are a small but active organization with a long history in Burlington. In 1970-1981, some of our members were part of a huge citizen action (1000 members) that pioneered sustained, city-wide, multimaterial recycling in Canada. The name of that organization was Citizens' Committee for Pollution Control (CCPC): 1970-1983. 1981, the city of Burlington became the first city in Canada to hire a contractor for this type of program. |
In 2012, we began our new organization, Recycling Revisited. We maintain a deep connection with CCPC and iare also involved in many other environmental issues.We are a registered non-profit organization.
