Four cheers for OPL’s recycling!

(you know, it’s me, and I couldn’t resist the E. M. Forster reference…)

One cheer for each branch of the Ottawa Public Library that were named in the Waste Diversion Achievement Awards recently!

That would be: Rosemount, where 92% of the waste generated at the location was recycled, Metcalfe (81%),  Centennial (75%), and Blackburn Hamlet (70%). A big round of applause goes to both staff and patrons at these locations for going the extra mile.

The OPL press release also makes the excellent point, too, that borrowing from the library is, in and of itself, a green activity!
