Rethink It

October 1, 2015

We’re launching an exciting new brand that will encourage residents to rethink their habits and the impact they have on the environment.

Rethink waste. Rethink recycling. Rethink our resources.

Rethink it.

Why rethink recycling in the NWT?

We all need to do our part to reduce the amount of natural resources that we consume and then throw away as waste. This waste either ends up as litter on the land and in the water or taking up space in community landfills. Our programs aim to reduce, reuse, recycle and recover waste products or materials throughout the NWT, or ban certain materials that damage the environment. 

Visit to see the changes.  We’re hoping we can count on your continued support to keep the NWT clean.
