The Municipal Waste Association (MWA — formerly the AMRC) held its Spring Workshop on May 19-20, 2010 at the Hockley Valley Resort. Conference sessions took place on the second day; the morning featured an update by Phil Zigby, Chair MWA Markets, Operations & Contracts Committee on markets for recycled commodities, that was notably more upbeat than last year due to strengthening prices, an update on work that Continuous Improvement Fund (CIF) is doing on diversion in the multi-residential sector and a panel on changes to organics collection and processing. The afternoon included sessions on the CIF and updates on the Waste Diversion Act (WDA) review and Ontario’s product stewardship programs for waste electronics, household hazardous waste and scrap tires. Time ran out for a discussion on the WDA review, which was then moved onto the internet as a conversation to take place there.
