Often under appreciated and overlooked, waste management is a cornerstone of a sustainable, efficient and healthy city. As Torontonians, most of us can proudly wave our eco-flags and say that we separate our organics from our regular waste. But what actually happens to our organics once they leave the curb? Where does it go? How do they deal with the plastic bags? These mysteries and other related tales will all be answered on The Civic Salon’s site visit to the Disco Road Green Bin Facility.
