Fittingly, it's the soundtrack for the City of Calgary's quasi efforts to divert waste (resource) from the landfill. The items below are headed Straight to Hell, aka the Calgary Landfill. It will not be sorted. Hello, Sorting Stations! It will not be reused. It will not be recycled. It will not be used for something useful and thereby eliminating the need to extract those materials from the planet. It is a resource that will be turned into a waste by City of Calgary inaction. It will decompose over the next 1000 years and perhaps with a methane capture system, 1/1000th of the energy via LFG (Landfill Gas) will be recovered.
The City of Calgary has waste diversion targets that are almost comedic when juxtaposed with on the ground action. While European cities are implementing intelligent sorting and diversion strategies, achieving 95%+ diversion from landfills, our unused resources (aka waste) are going to Straight to Hell.
We’ve seen a steady drop in family size since WWII, yet according tohe Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp., the average Canadian house size has increased from 800 square feet in 1945 to well over 2,200 today. And somehow or another, Canadians are also supporting an $8 billion a year self-storage industry to store the toys and knick-knacks that won’t fit in their growing houses. ~Ashley Lubyk
The NHL had a Make Whole proposal. ATB might want to look into that.
The ATB Sparks propaganda:
Meet our whole-brainers.
In Alberta, you don't have to choose between mountains or prairie, culture or community—you can find it all within our borders.
At ATB, we're like that too. In every corner of
the province, you'll find an ATB associate with knowledge, know-how,
common sense, and creativity. This unique mix means they're not
right-brainers or left-brainers—they're whole-brainers, and we take a
whole lot of pride in their ability to help Albertans and Alberta
businesses achieve great things.
