Well the day has finally arrived! Halton Region Waste Management Services is proud to launch our social media program, including this blog and our Twitter feed.
When we began developing this new program, we were asked, “what will you blog or tweet about?” Well, you might be surprised how much we have to share with you! We also want to hear from you as well. Feel free to share your thoughts, photos and bits of interesting environmental information. This is an open forum to celebrate the 3Rs (reduce, reuse, recycle) and we’re really looking forward to hearing from you!
If I’m at a party and someone asks me what I do, as soon as I reply “I work in waste management,” the person automatically starts telling me how they recycle in their home, they question what to do with that unusual item sitting in their basement, and wonder what impact the Blue Box and GreenCart have on the Halton Waste Management Site.
People are very interested in waste — after all, everyone makes it.
So, we encourage you to visit our blog regularly and follow us on Twitter. We have 10 staff members — representing our Collections, Landfill, and Planning groups — blogging and tweeting, so you’re going to find an exciting assortment of stories from very diverse perspectives.
As always, you can get other waste management information by visiting our website or by dialing 311 in Halton, or 905-825-6000, toll free 1-866-442-5866.
