TORONTO, Oct. 14 /CNW/ - Sesame Street's Oscar the Grouch will arrive just in time for Waste Reduction Week, a weeklong campaign urging all Canadians to reduce, reuse and recycle in all aspects of their lives. After a month of secretly roaming the Great White North to learn why Canadians are so concerned about trash and reducing waste, Oscar, Waste Reduction Week's national spokes-Muppet, will share his travel experiences and hear from students at one of the Toronto District School Board's Platinum-level Eco Schools.
More than 400 students will fill the gymnasium floor at Rose Avenue Public School for a surprise visit by Oscar the Grouch.
