The Saskatchewan Waste Reduction Council is dedicated to helping the people of Saskatchewan reduce waste.
SWRC Tip - Drywall
Follow the old adage "Measure twice, cut once" to reduce errors that lead to wastage.
SWRC Tip - Watering the Lawn
Frequent watering can result in a shallow root system, weed growth and disease, and a less drought- and stress-tolerant lawn. If your lawn is established, water it deeply, but not more than once a week and skip a week after a good rain.
SWRC Tip - Fluorescent lights
While fluorescent lights can use up to 75% less energy than incandescents, they do contain small amounts of mercury. Be sure to recycle your tubes and bulbs.
