Late 2015, the Government of Ontario introduced a new waste reduction and resource recovery strategy that could put the province at the forefront of environmental protection and resource conservation.
The Recycling Council of Ontario says this is long overdue and critical to improving Ontario’s environment and economy. According to Jo-A
nne St. Godard, Executive Director, Recycling Council of Ontario:
For more than a decade Recycling Council of Ontario has been advocating for change in waste legislation, and we are pleased the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change is going to making good on its commitment to address the waste issues that plague Ontario. We need a policy shift that marries the economic and environmental benefits of reducing materials lost to disposal and redirecting them into the production of new goods.
