Thinking Green Initiatives
Our "Thinking Green!" Program is a comprehensive sustainability program committed to protecting the environment, enhancing economic prosperity, and improving the health and lifestyle of our community. “Thinking Green!” is about policies and actions that make sense, and when added together will make a difference. Listed here are some of the things we have already committed to or are working on:
- The Thinking Green Development Standards (TGDS) will help to ensure sustainable development
- The Green Bin Collection – launched in September 2007 to encourage residents to further reduce the amount of waste that is directed to landfill sites
- Town-Wide Litter Clean Up - Residents, businesses and organizations participate in annual litter clean up.
For more information please visit the Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority website to contact your local Stewardship Technician.
- LEAF's (Local Enhancement & Appreciation of Forests) Backyard Tree Planting Program, which offers native trees and shrubs to homeowners at a subsidized cost
