Home Waste Audit

January 18 @ 7:00 pm March 1 @ 8:00 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 our Home Waste Audit and challenge yourself to reduce your waste as you increase your waste literacy!

How it works:

Your Home Waste Audit takes place over 4 weeks during the period of Wednesday January 19 – Tuesday February 15, 2022. You will also be invited to attend two webinars, taking place before and after completing your Home Waste Audit.

  • Each week you will audit your waste by recording what ends up in your garbage and recycling bins.
  • There will be a series of short online surveys to complete (sent by email).
Webinars:

The first webinar takes place the day before your audit to provide instructions on how to audit your waste. The second webinar takes place a few weeks after your audit to share our final results.

  • Webinar 1 – Introduction to the Home Waste Audit: Tuesday January 18 at 7 pm EST
  • Webinar 2 – Results from the Home Waste Audit: Tuesday March 1 at 7 pm EST

***Registering will automatically register you for both webinars.***

Once registered, please visit the Home Waste Audit page for complete instructions and resources. We will also share these by email!
