Gold Star for Oakville’s Green Initiatives

Ontario Waste Minimization Awards

The month end of 2012 saw the Town of Oakville win the Ontario Waste Minimization Award in the category of Municipal Combined Programs from the Recycling Council of Ontario (RCO) – a gold standard with a golden plaque to match. It’s no secret that Oakville Ontario is already one of the most livable cities in the country and one of the reasons for this is that it is one of the most sustainable. Our effectiveness in waste management (not the New Jersey kind from across the pond – just kidding) is a testament to this fact.


The Town of Oakville received the award based on its excellence in the following three categories:

  • Municipal Diversion — Awarded for Oakville’s successful implementation of waste diversion programs at Oakville facilities that have aided employees in achieving a 70 percent waste diversion rate average.
  • Municipal Communications — Awarded for Oakville’s use of innovative communication tools including an internal website complemented by social media initiatives, an employee newsletter, and outreach programs to better engage and inform employees and residents about waste diversion.
  • Municipal Unique Program — Awarded for Oakville’s Towards Zero Waste Procedure. Developed in 2009, this initiative was created to direct town operations towards the achievement of widespread waste reduction and diversion goals.

As the moving company Oakville residents and commercial interests turn to for regional relocations we have always paid close attention to the city’s environmental programs and recommendations and this is mirrored in our day to day operations as a business that cares deeply about its environment. We are proud to see that Oakville has received this important recognition. It is a testament to the fact that we together as a community have made great strides towards becoming a self-sufficient town that understands the interconnectedness between its people, the businesses within, and the nature that surrounds it all. As an Oakville mover we see firsthand that people often move to Oakville because of its inherent beauty – from waterfront to greenspace – and we intend to help keep it that way.

As we enter 2013 we encourage all of our residents in continuing to join us in making Oakville Ontario the most livable town in the country.

For those of you that are considering becoming a part of our fine community in the year ahead, feel free to contact our Oakville moving company today and let us welcome you into the fold.
