Solid Waste Statistics & Facts in Canada
 Almost 25 million tonnes of non-hazardous waste were
disposed in Canada in 2010 (Ontario disposed the most)
 On a per capita basis, a total of 729 kg of waste was
disposed per person in 2010 (Alberta was the highest)
 Slightly more than one third of waste for disposal came
from residential sources
 The total amount of materials diverted for recycling or
composting was 8.1 million tonnes, or 236 kg per person
in 2010
 There is concern that Canada’s landfills are reaching
capacity and it is becoming increasingly difficult to find
sites for new ones
Source: Statistics Canada / www.ec.gc.ca
The importance of the 3Rs: Reduce, Reuse,
Recycle
The most effective way to reduce the garbage is
reducing the amount of solid waste produced
By reducing waste at the source, you save the
resources like water and energy
Like reducing, reusing avoids creating waste
rather than trying to recycle it once it's already
there
Operating a well-run recycling program costs
less than waste collection and landfilling
Importance of 3Rs…
Recycling helps families save money, because
they pay for less disposal costs
Generally, recycling produces less air and water
pollution than manufacturing with new materials
By recycling you send less materials to landfills,
which will keep them for future
Proper disposal and recycling will prevent water
and soil contamination and its potential adverse
impacts on public health
Recycling Council of British Columbia
http://rcbc.bc.ca/
Did you know that…
 It takes 24 trees to make 1 ton of newspaper
 1 recycled glass bottle would save enough
energy to power a computer for 25 minutes
Recycling creates four jobs for every one job
created in the disposal industries
Recycling one aluminum can saves enough
energy to run a TV for three hours
The amount of wood and paper, we throw away
each year is enough to heat 50,000,000
homes for 20 years

Municipal programs for Waste
management in Toronto
 In 2008, charges for size of bins
 Curbside collection: blue bin for recyclables, green bin
for organics and gray for garbage
 Separate curbside collection of electronics now available
 The Green bin program collects food waste, wet-paper,
diapers and pet waste
 Green bin program for multi-unit buildings now
underway- 8% now have a collection
 In 2012, 52% of residential waste was diverted (66% of
single-family homes, 24% in multi-unit)
 The goal is 70% diversion
York region’s special waste
Management Programs
Residents of York region should not put plastic
bags, wrap and film in the blue box
Plastic Bag Take-Back Program: you can drop off
plastic bags at retail stores across the York region
so they can be sent for recycling
They also should not put shredded paper in the blue
box due to their difficulty to be managed
York region residents can use an online Bindicator
to find the best options for where it should go by
entering the item or select a category in the
www.York.ca
Some Tips Guide to Reduce, Reuse,
and Recycle
Reducing tips:
While shopping, reduce your waste by avoiding pointless
purchases
Look for products with less packaging or buy them in
bulk
Rent, share or borrow items that are not used
frequently like tools, party decorations
For shopping, use your own cloth bags
Switch to e-bills to save paper whenever possible
Some Tips Guide to Reduce, Reuse,
and Recycle
Reusing tips:
Purchase more durable products that can be repaired
and reused
Donate reusable items to schools, churches, or other
charity organizations
Buy products that can be reused like rechargeable
batteries, refillable bottles instead of cans
Before you throw any item away, think how you can
reuse them like scrap papers or your old clothes
Consider buying used items from reuse centres
Some Tips Guide to Reduce, Reuse,
and Recycle
Recycling tips:
You can recycle your leftover foods, yard leaves by
composting in your garden
Use recycling services which are provided by your
municipality or take-back programs
Buy products that are recyclable or made from recycled
materials by checking their labels
Hazardous wastes are difficult to recycle so try to find
non-toxic alternatives and products
Try your best to put waste in its right place and
ask for help if you are not sure!

  1. - Why we need information and statistics in waste management industry? Canadians need reliable environmental statistics in order to make informed decisions regarding their own patterns of consumption. As well, waste statistics can be used by researchers and policy makers to analyze industry trends and implement appropriate policy mechanisms. - Hazardous waste: Includes materials or substances that given their corrosive, inflammable, infectious, reactive and toxic characteristics, may present a real or potential harm to human health or the environment. Due to their hazardous Nature they require special handling, storing, transportation, treatment and disposal. Most common way to dispose of waste in Canada is sending them to Landfills Other ways of disposing: Incinerating, Recycling, Composting, Exporting, and changing to energy
  2. Often opportunities to reduce waste are greatest at the point-of-purchase. Packaging makes up about half of our garbage by volume and one third by weight By eliminating waste at its source, that waste does not end up in landfill and no extra energy is required to reuse or recycle it Reducing the amount of waste you produce does not mean having to live with less. It just takes some planning. Reuse means Borrow, Repair, and Reuse Reuse saves money, resources, energy and landfill space. Manufacturing with recycled materials, with very few exceptions, saves energy and water and produces less air and water pollution than manufacturing with virgin materials. Recycling creates four jobs for every one job created in the waste management and disposal industries.

  4. If Recycled: - It would take 60 days to make a new can from an aluminium can and replace it to the grocer’s shelf For a glass container: 8-12 weeks Paper is hydro-pulped into new paper products Recycled plastic is made into fiber to make new bottles and other products
  5. So by recycling 1 ton of paper we will be able to save 24 trees Plastic bags and other plastic garbage thrown into the ocean kill as many as 1,000,000 sea creatures every year! On average, it costs $30 per ton to recycle trash, $50 to send it to the landfill, and $65 to $75 to incinerate it. Out of every $10 spent buying things, $1 (10%) goes for packaging that is thrown away. Packaging represents about 65% of household trash.
  6. In 2007 Just 52% of Canadian households recycled all materials they were able to recycle Unspecified reasons: they did not recycle due to some problem with the recycling options that were available to them: for example, that there was no curbside pickup available, that the drop-off depot was too far, or that the facility or program in their area was inadequate. Another common explanation was that that they did not produce enough waste to make recycling worthwhile.
  7. Plastic accounts for a much smaller proportion of diversion overall (it composes 9% of our solid waste)
  8. Other programs: leaf/yard waste and Christmas trees, backyard composting, Community Environment Days, household hazardous waste depots, grass cycling, large appliance/scrap metal pick up and electronics pick-up. Some programs to increase multi-unit diversion : providing assistance to property managers in developing waste reduction plans and presentations to residents on how to recycle and participate in the green bin program Additionally city staff are developing a Long Term Waste Management Strategy for Toronto to provide a framework for solid waste management policy decisions over the next 30 to 50 years. The City is committed to continuing to improve our waste diversion efforts, reducing our dependence on landfill and moving closer to the goal of 70% waste diversion, in addition to preserving the long term capacity of our Green Lane Landfill
  9. Plastic bags, wrap and film get caught in our equipment, resulting in the equipment shutting down and the possible risk of fire.
