Help us shape our single-use items waste reduction strategy!

The City of Spruce Grove continues to strive to create a more sustainable city and we want to work with you to successfully reduce the amount of single-use items that end up in the landfill each year.

Our initial focus is to determine how to eliminate plastic retail bags, plastic straws, and polystyrene (Styrofoam) single-use containers and cups from the waste stream. By doing this, we also aim to reduce the contamination of our recyclable and compostable materials.

This initiative will have impacts on both businesses and residents, which is why we need your help to shape how we can best divert these items from the waste stream.

Leading the Way!

Municipalities across Alberta are joining others across Canada and the globe to reduce the amount of single-use items in their waste and recycling streams. Spruce Grove is at the forefront of this initiative in Alberta. Let’s work together to be a leader!
