An Ottawa father wrapped up his zero-waste experiment this month after a whole year of not sending anything to a landfill.

From October 2017 to the same month in 2018, JP Torunski said he produced almost no trash. Instead, he kept almost everything he couldn't compost or recycle in two Rubbermaid bins in his basement.

"Ideally, I would avoid having any waste in the first place," he told CBC Radio's In Town and Out. "[But] certain things I'd allow myself to throw out, like anything [that] was dangerous."
