On Wednesday, December 1st at 9:30 a.m. Solid Waste & Recycling magazine Editor Guy Crittenden will deliver the keynote address for the Canadian Waste & Recycling Expo (International Centre, 6900 Airport Rd., Mississagua, ON).

In his presentation, “Trash Talk”, Guy will offer a behind-the-scenes look at some of his favorite investigative articles.

From the conference brochure:

“For more than 15 years, Guy Crittenden has worked as a journalist and editor in specialty magazines serving the environmental protection and waste management industry. Along the way, he’s written about many interesting situations, from the tire fire in Hagersville and the Plastiment scrap fire in Hamilton, to the Varnicolor and Uniroyal contamination case in southern Ontario and the Swan Hills waste plant debacle near Edmonton. He covered the Waxman vs. Waxman civil trial and exposed the shortcomings of the supposed “cleanup” of toxic dump sites along the Niagara river such as famous Love Canal.

Join Guy for a candid presentation on some of the interesting and sometimes amusing experiences from his research on these and other topics.”

Failure could result in penalties in the millions of dollars for the organization or a maxim
um jail term for the decision makers, up to life imprisonment. The law is an addition to existing health and safety legislation and applies to workplaces both federal and provincial.
