key components of waste management

Key Components of Waste Management

Source separation


Local waste management facilities (LWMF)

Material Recovery Facility (MRF)

Compost facility

Construction & Demolition Debris facility

Household Hazardous Waste facility

Second generation Landfill (lined landfill)

source separation two bag wet dry

Source Separation – Two Bag (wet/dry)


efficient single-pass collection (lower collection costs)

the production of compost;

the stabilization of Wet waste residue;

the inability to hide unacceptable wastes (e.g. HHW, yard waste) in transparent bags.

compost carts not required

less education of the public required (sorting is simpler)

control of recovery rates occurs at the facility instead of in the home or curb, providing the flexibility to respond to market demands

Registered the Central Site for Environmental Assessmenton June 5, 2007 and was released on October 1, 2007

Discovered there were no standards for Waste Management Facility

No Funds to Cover Capital Costs



Province Endorsed Waste Management Strategy

Funds granted from Gas Tax Agreement
