Take a tour of Edmonton’s amazing waste treatment plant with Erika Droessler and Brad Jones. In Edmonton we recycle 50% of our garbage, and we are gearing up to make that 90%. The urgency of running out of landfill space made city planners creative with garbage – turning it into a resource rather than a waste.
