Download the Town of The Blue Mountains (TBM) Waste Resource application in support of Waste Reduction Week and you could win a TBM prize pack.
“This is really an attempt to get the word out to our residents in our community about how to reduce waste, and what types of wastes can be diverted from our landfill. So, we encourage everyone to have a look on our website and or through the app,” said Shawn Carey, director of operations for TBM.
The TBM Waste Resource app is available as a mobile and web-based application and provides residents with waste collection information, waste wizard searches, alerts for service interruptions and access to special waste collection campaigns.
The app also allows residents to confirm collection day and holiday collection information and can also be used to determine what types of materials or waste are accepted curbside or at the landfill site.
To enter the contest, download the free mobile app on your Android or Apple device by searching “TBM Waste Resource” and complete the contest form.
Participants can also visit TBM’s website and click the contest button to access the sign-up form. The contest will run from Oct. 19 to Nov. 1.
One entry will be randomly selected to win a TBM prize pack, which includes: a hoodie, cap, sunglasses, reusable bag, delivery of wood chip mulch to your home, and delivery of finished and screened compost to your home.
Waste Reduction Week (Oct. 19-25) is a nationally recognized event to promote the principles of a circular economy and resource efficiency, which aims to avoid products designed for convenience and instead focuses on designing products so resources can be reused or reinvested in a continuous cycle.
