Mayor Michael Fougere has proclaimed Waste Reduction Week in Regina. Waste Reduction Week is a national environmental campaign that builds awareness around issues of sustainable and responsible consumption and promotes actions that divert more waste from the Landfill.

“I want to show our dedication to waste reduction in our community and challenge residents and businesses to do the same,” said Mayor Fougere. “It is important for everyone to adopt more environmentally-conscious choices in their homes and workplaces to reduce the amount of waste going to the Landfill.”
