This past December the Town of Caledon hosted its first ‘Green Holiday Tree Challenge’ which involved challenging all Departments and Facilities to build their own tree based on the 3 R’s (Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle). To get the event started the Energy and Environment team built a Green Holiday Tree for Town Hall composed of recycled egg cartons and hung daily tips for how to ‘Green’ your holiday.
On December 19th the trees were showcased in the Atrium of Town Hall and with the help of Mayor Thompson, Judy Porter (Director of Human Resources) and Councillor Nick deBoer, Public Works Department was selected as the winner for their tree made of recycled bottles, pop cans and tin cups.
Stay tuned for more Green initiatives from Town Hall in 2015!
