Education & Resources

Our goal: to provide effective and sustainable waste management in West Hants that promotes both an economically and environmentally viable community, now and for future generations. 

WHRM aknowleges that we, our contracted collectors, and the facilities we use all have a very important role to play in effective, sustainable waste management. Here, we want to highlight that the success we strive for begins at an individual level, with each of our daily actions.

This section of our website is an educational tool to empower you - the individual - to make informed decisions that will help us foster a more sustainable future; one that involves less waste!
