CALGARY CAN GRASSROOTS RECYCLING ENTERPRISE: 51.047869, -114.072418
CALGARY CAN GRASSROOTS RECYCLING ENTERPRISE
This cooperative enterprise will build a collective identity and stature amongst members of the informal recycling community, increase the amount of recyclable materials being recovered to reduce landfill space and provide affordable community-led recycling options to small businesses and multi-family residences not serviced by the Blue Cart program.
This project is the first phase in exploring the opportunities for Calgary Can Grassroots Recycling Enterprise. Our goal is to determine the feasibility of 'Calgary Can' as an inclusive and economically viable urban environmental enterprise that addresses poverty and social exclusion.
