Ontario Working toward Zero Waste



Back in November, 2015 the Government of Ontario presented 
Bill 151, the Waste-Free Ontario Act, to the Provincial Parliament.
This is a very ambitious effort


The Vision of the Act is to have  A circular economy where we have zero waste and zero greenhouse gas emissions from the waste sector and where all resources, organic or non-organic, are used and reused productively, maximizing their potential and reintegrating recovered materials back into the economy.

The Act has two Goals:  Zero waste in the Province and Zero greenhouse gas emission from the waste sector.

These goals are to be realized by achieving three Objectives:

#1: Increase Resource Productivity and Reduce Waste.

#2: Enable an Efficient and Effective Recycling System.

#3: Create Conditions to Support Sustainable End-Markets.
