ONEIA industry breakfast meeting features Glenda Gies

Waste not, want not: Diverting Ontario's Waste...


Waste not, want not: Diverting Ontario’s Waste
Scheduled for January 29, 2004
Hosted by the Ontario Environment Industry Association (ONEIA)

Dealing with the ever increasing stream of solid waste is an issue of paramount importance. To date only a relatively small percentage of the millions of tonnes of solid waste collected in Ontario are being diverted away from landfill sites through recycling, composting or re-use. So much more needs to be done if the new government is to meet the 60 per cent waste diversion goal announced during the recent election campaign.

Learn more about Waste Diversion Ontario, the agency mandated to develop, implement and operate waste diversion programs for a wide range of materials. Attend the January breakfast meeting for an overview of the significant challenges and opportunities confronting our burgeoning solid material waste stream system.

Speaker: Glenda Gies, Executive Director
Waste Diversion Ontario

Glenda has been directly involved in the evolution of recycling, composting and other 3Rs systems for some 25 years. Over that time, Glenda has been instrumental in guiding the growth of Durham’s community recycling program from a drop-off depot to region-wide collection of recyclables with a centralized processing facility. Glenda has also participated in R&D that led to a patented Canadian in-vessel composting technology and consulted to Canadian and international organizations to develop waste diversion policies, plans and operating systems.
