The Ontario Environment Industry Association is presenting a breakfast event entitled “Keeping Toronto Fit: Watching its Waste Line” on September 30, 2004.
The event, to be held at the Lionhead Golf & Country Club in Mississauga, will feature a presentation on how the City of Toronto intends to develop and utilize new and emerging technologies for the collection, disposal and treatment of solid wastes.
Angelos Bacopoulos, general manager of Solid Waste Management Services Division for Toronto Works & Emergency Services will quantify population demands and budget constraints and provide valuable insight into how business can collaborate to bring market solutions to this important and controversial municipal issue. In addition, Mr. Bacopoulos will reflect on the growing pressure to not export garbage and instead find effective and efficient ways to meet the mandated 60 per cent waste diversion and “no waste” targets by 2006 and 2010, respectively.
Mr. Bacopoulos oversees all operations of Toronto’s Solid Waste Management Division including the collection, disposal and processing of all waste and recyclable materials. He is a member of the Association of Professional Engineers of Ontario, Municipal Engineers Association, American Public Works Association and the Solid Waste Association of North America. Prior to his employment with the city, Mr. Bacopoulos was employed by a geotechnical consulting firm specializing in soil and rock mechanics and hydrogeology.
