In October 2008, Ontario’s Ministry of the Environment launched its review of Ontario’s Waste Diversion Act with the release of a discussion paper titled Toward A Zero Waste Future – Review of Ontario’s Waste Diversion Act.
CIELAP has undertaken its own review of the goals and objectives of the WDA and the results achieved under the legislation thus far. As part of this review, CIELAP conducted interviews with a broad range of stakeholders that included representatives from industry, municipalities, environmental non-governmental organizations (ENGOs), lawyers, academics, media and others. CIELAP also held a multi-stakeholder Roundtable to explore the possibilities for reforming the WDA. CIELAP’s Options Paper reflects the views and opinions of respondents from CIELAP’s interviews and the participants at CIELAP’s Roundtable.
