Education & Outreach

Waste Diversion Outreach Program

North Bay’s Waste Diversion Outreach Program provides the opportunity for elementary school students to learn about the City’s waste diversion programs through a fun and interactive approach using the 6R's (Rethink, Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Repair and Recycle).

Presentations focus on programs that the City has in place to help divert waste from the Merrick Landfill site, including the Household Hazardous Waste Depot, electronics recycling, leaf and yard waste drop-off, mattress recycling, and the Blue Box recycling program.

As part of the program, students are asked to create artwork to help educate and remind North Bay residents how they can divert waste from our landfill. 

How to Participate

To request a presentation for your school or organization, please contact our Environmental Control Officer, Victoria Thomas by email at or by phone at 705-474-0400 ext. 5221.
