A report prepared by Kelleher Environmental for the Ontario Ministry of the Environment, is now complete and available to interested parties.
Kelleher Environmental was contracted in April 2005 to hold a consultation session with selected representatives of the IC&I sector, to explore their assessment of the options currently under consideration for diversion of 60 per cent of waste in Ontario, and to collect additional feedback on potential elements of the 60 per cent diversion strategy for IC&I and C&D waste.
A half-day meeting took place on April 27, 2005 in Toronto. The meeting was facilitated by Betty Muise, a professional facilitator, and Maria Kelleher was the notetaker.
A presentation was made describing various IC&I waste diversion options under consideration by the Ministry at this time. Participants were asked for their input in the following areas:
– Which of the measures presented would enhance their current or future waste diversion efforts? (How would the proposed measures affect them);
– What was their assessment of the key impacts of the proposed measures?
– Provide suggestions on reporting and enforcement.
– Identify the two most important impacts and issues they would like the MOE to consider in their future plans.
The full report, including an Executive Summary, is now available on the Solid Waste & Recycling web site, in the “Posted Documents” section.
