Waste diversion for businesses and organizations

Between now and 2020, we're making changes to the way hospitals, schools, offices, warehouses, restaurants, hotels, malls, manufacturers, factories and other commercial businesses and non-profit organizations handle their waste. A series of rate and bylaw changes will require recycling and diverting of food and yard waste from landfills.

We're tackling recycling first. Here's a snapshot of what's happening in 2016.

Whether you're a business that produces waste, a waste hauler, or a waste processor, we have details about these changes and other upcoming changes, as well as support tools and information to help you with the transition.
