At the beginning of 2018, the PRRD will be transitioning the pRRRdy (waste education) program in-house. The pRRRdy Bird is the Peace River Regional District waste education mascot. This website is meant to highlight simple, every day action that residents and businesses can take to help reduce waste. We will also be show casing a variety of capital projects that have been implement at our solid waste sites to make help make waste diversion more accessible and convenient.
A main component of the pRRRdy program is the 5Rs hierarchy.
The first step in waste reduction. This first step is all about rethinking you actions and choices.
The second step in waste reduction. This step is about all about saying no to excess waste. Do you need that plastic grocery bag? Can you bring a reusable bag? Can you say no to paper billing?
The third step in waste reduction. This step is all about finding and implementing ways to minimize you eco-footprint and reduce the amount of waste from your house or business.
This is the fourth step in waste reduction. This step is all about repurposing and finding new ways to use something so that it can have a long life. Is one persons’ “trash” another persons’ “treasure”?
This is the fifth step in waste reduction. This step is all about how if a product could not be rethought, refused, reduced, or reused then hopefully it can be recycled and given new life.
