******************************
The City of Barry recognizes October and October 16-22 as Circular Economy Month Waste Reduction Week Hosted in partnership with the Barrie Public Library, with events throughout the week in the Barrie community.

The City of Bari supports a circular economy: a system in which the life cycles of products and materials are extended and kept in circulation longer through activities such as reuse, repair, renovation, reuse or recycling. With this approach, waste is minimized and resources are maximized. One way the city supports a circular economy is by educating residents about waste decision-making.

The following events are happening in the Barrie community as part of Waste Reduction Week:

October 16: Circular Economy Monday

  • Check out a display at the Barry Public Library downtown branch (60 Worsley St.) during the day’s opening hours with books about the circular economy and reducing waste.

October 17: Textile Tuesday

  • Learn how to mend by hand, sew on a button, sew a pair of pants, mend a torn seam, or quilt block at the Barry Public Library downtown branch (60 Worsley St.) from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. By hand.

October 18: E-waste Wednesday

  • Experts from the city’s environmental sustainability team will participate in a family scare festival and demonstrate composting with worms. The event takes place at the Sadlon Arena (555 Bayview Dr.) from 4 to 8 p.m

October 19: Plastic Thursday

  • Learn how to replace single-use plastics at home, school and work. Experts from the city’s environmental sustainability team will show you the materials you can use. Let’s rethink and reduce plastic use. Held at the Barry Public Library City Branch (60 Worsley St) from 10am to 1pm.

Key Facts:

  • Like many municipalities, Barry continues to generate more waste each year. As more waste is generated, the city must manage more, which affects the natural environment, increases costs and fills land.
  • Developing a circular economy means finding creative ways to make things, use things in new ways, or return things to reuse. Examples include repairing or sharing items instead of throwing them out.
  • The annual campaign for Waste Reduction Week in Canada began in 2001 Circular Innovation Council, a national non-profit. In 2022, to build on 20 years of success in delivering Waste Reduction Week in Canada, the Circular Innovation Council launched Circular Economy Month, an expanded program to increase awareness of Canada’s circular economy.
