Greater Sudbury

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Rethink!

It is estimated that Canadians produce a total of more than 31 million tonnes of household waste each year.  It's up to each of us to make responsible choices.  Don't trash it until you've tried the 3R's.


  • Avoid items that are excessively or needlessly packaged.
  • Buy reusable coffee filters and cloth napkins.  Avoid paper/foam plates and cups.
  • Avoid plastic bags.  Carry reusable bags or boxes for your shopping trips.


  • Reuse scrap paper for writing notes and write on both sides.
  • Use refillable containers and rechargeable batteries.
  • Wash and reuse plastic food storage bags and heavy aluminum foil.


Instead of throwing things you no longer need, consider organizations that can give your items a second life.  There are many groups in the City of Greater Sudbury that accept clothing, furniture, appliances and old computers.

  • Some organizations are willing to pick up donations.
  • Holding a yard or garage sale is a great way to recycle unwanted items so they can be reused by someone else.

The following is a list of non-profit organizations in your area that are willing to accept your gently used items.  Select the link of your choice.
