Binners' Project : 2016 Activities Binners' Project


“At its core, the Binners’ Project fosters social and economic inclusion, builds community resilience and stronger networks, and engages on sustainability issues. Through our programs, we empower binners as part of the circular economy cleaning alleys and building a community from the bottom up. All of our activities speak to the social determinants of health stemming from the City of Vancouver Healthy City Strategy and the creation of new economic possibilities, relating to recycling, that align with the City’s 2020 Greenest City Action Plan. The Binners’ Project is a project on Tides Canada’s shared platform, which provides governance, human resources, financial, and grant management for leading environmental and social projects across Canada.2016 has been our biggest year so far. The Binners’ Project continues to grow as we see an influx of interest from binners, residents, community partners, and Canadians at large in working together towards a more just society.”
