1998 RCO CONFERENCE AND TRADE SHOW
OCTOBER 6-8, 1998
It’s been almost twenty years since the Recycling Council of Ontario (RCO) formed to bring recyclers together and promote the 3Rs of waste management in Canada’s most populated and industrial province. Instrumental in helping launch the widely-adopted Blue Box program, RCO has since gone on to bring together public and private sector organizations to grapple with some of the more difficult resource use issues facing society today. Many of these issues are on the agenda for RCO’s 19th Annual Conference and Trade Show taking place at the Toronto Congress Centre this October 6 to 8.
This year’s program includes the following plenary speakers:
Dr. Suzuki is Canada’s most recognized scientist. He is a writer, host of CBC television’s The Nature of Things, and founder of the Suzuki Foundation, w
hich focuses on a broad range of environmental and sustainability issues. Dr
. Suzuki has been invited to discuss the environmental implications of global resource use and his thoughts on how we accommodate Earth’s burgeoning population of consumers.
r. Bill Rees is the director of community and regional planning at the University of British Columbia. In his acclaimed book, Our Ecological Footprint: Reducing Human Impact on Earth, Dr. Rees provides astounding data about the resources used and pollution generated to support individuals in various parts of the world. If you missed Dr. Rees’ riveting talk at the 1997 RCO Conference, this is your opportunity to hear him discuss our “Ecological Footprints” and how, in truly valuing our future, it is our responsibility to consider them in our daily lives.
The Honourable Norm Sterling states that until now, waste management in the province has been governed by more than eight regulations. This has led to confusion about the requirements and, in some cases, actually worked against good environmental protection.
His government proposes to change that with one waste management regulation containing the requirements for managing recyclables, non-hazardous, and hazardous wastes. The proposed new regulation will be better, stronger, and clearer and will result in more cost-effective and better management of wastes and recyclables.
Mr. Sterling will discuss his Ministry’s plan on regulations, financing, and industry stewardship on October 7th at the RCO Conference.
