The Zero Waste High-Rise Project

Zero Waste High-Rise Project: Online Program

The Toronto Environmental Alliance (TEA) has been working with and studying residential high-rise buildings as they reduce waste, increase recycling and increase composting. We’ve seen that buildings have cut their waste, created stronger communities, improved their buildings, and saved money.

Now, we're sharing inspiring success stories, guides and resources to share what we’ve learned with high-rise residents and staff to help more Toronto high-rises become zero-waste buildings.
