Parish of Burin recycling project
In Newfoundland, many small communities are far removed from recycling depots. This grant will be used to build a central parish recycling shed in the parish of Burin. Recyclables will be collected from parishioners at each church in the parish every week, and brought to the central recycling shed. Volunteers will regularly transport recycling from the shed to the nearest recycling centre.
Mark of Mission
This project reflects the fifth Mark: To strive to safeguard the integrity of creation and sustain and renew the life of the earth.
