Public Service Announcement
Waste Reduction Week 2022

The Department of Environment is challenging Nunavummiut to participate in Waste Reduction Week from October 17 to 23, 2022.

In keeping with Avatittinnik Kamatsiarniq – care and respect for the land, animals, and the environment – Waste Reduction Week 2022 encourages us all to practice the five Rs: Reduce, Reuse, Repair, Recycle and Repurpose.

Get creative with food leftovers, bring your own bag when you shop, and support community thrift stores and sell/swap pages. Before discarding used goods, consider refurbishing or repurposing them.

Visit the Department of Environment’s website at to learn more about how you can make a difference in your community and share your ideas on social media using the hashtag #WasteReductionWeek.
