Be Green

Green Initiatives

In keeping with Hillside Centre’s commitment to environmental stewardship, effective April 1 our team will sort food court waste in an effort to minimize our landfill contributions and maximize our organic diversion rates. Your cooperation and understanding is greatly appreciated by Mother Nature and Hillside Centre!

In November, Hillside was awarded the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Leadership Award. Through the recycling of used cooking oil, 9,040 litres, Hillside has reduced 27.70 tonnes of greenhouse gas. The BC BioFuel Network collects the used cooking oil and recycles it into sustainable biofuels for homes, cards and businesses. The oil once used in our food court fryers could now be powering our customer’s car or truck.

Did you know that Hillside collected 30,749 bottles (plastic & glass) from the food court in 2016? By recycling our bottles we generated over $1,500 in revenue which will go towards other recycling initiatives! It pays to be green!
