Dundee Recycling celebrated Canada’s 150th by planting one tree for every customer that visited our recycling facility. Customers were encouraged to grab their recyclable items to make some extra cash from recycling while doing something great for our environment! To take we have planted over 270 trees!
Green Recycling Program Helps Plant Trees
Each year Dundee Recycling will have trees planted across the province as part of its green recycling program initiative. All trees donated are planted in the spring time. We will be donating to have a tree planted for every customer that comes into our shop starting October 1, 2016 until July 1, 2017.
Planting Trees For Our Future
Planting trees will help us grow smarter, healthier and greener forests, and sustainably manage Ontario’s most important natural resource for decades to come. Also, trees conserve energy. Three trees placed strategically around a single-family home can cut summer air conditioning needs by up to 50 percent. By reducing the energy demand for cooling our houses, we reduce carbon dioxide and other pollution emissions from power plants!
This program is in partnership with Forests Ontario.
