Home Waste Audit

January 23 @ 7:00 pm

Start off the new year with the University of Toronto Trash Team!

It’s the start of a new year, are you wondering how you can increase your waste literacy and circularity? Back by popular demand, you can join the University of Toronto Trash Team’s Home Waste Audit and challenge yourself to reduce your waste as you increase your waste literacy!

The Home Waste Audit is designed to increase your waste literacy regarding local waste management systems and how local residential waste impacts the global waste footprint. You will learn about the waste stream in the municipality where you live as you decrease your own waste footprint and divert waste away from the landfill.

How it works:

The audit takes place over 4 weeks during the period of Tuesday January 24 – Monday February 20, 2023. Participants will also be invited to attend two webinars, taking place before and after completing their Home Waste Audit.

  • Each week participants will audit their waste by recording what ends up in their garbage and recycling bins.
  • They will also complete a series of short online surveys (sent by email).


  • Webinar 1 – Introduction to the Home Waste Audit: Monday, January 23 at 7 pm EST
  • Webinar 2 – Results from the Home Waste Audit: Monday, March 6 at 7 pm EST
