The Economic Benefits of Recycling in Ontario

Feb 23, 2012

Expanding waste reduction policies and commodity pricing recovery have been positive for Ontario's waste diversion and recycling industries; we are collecting more materials for recovery and recycling more than ever. However the benefits of recycling are often described in terms of environmental protection, not key economic contribution.
On Feb. 23rd, Andrew Keir (senior consultant
OARA Logowith AECOM Canada Ltd.) presented findings from his report: "The Economic Benefits of Recycling in Ontario" (click the link on the right to download the PDF slide presentation). Our thanks to Andrew for the informative and insightful discussion and to the many members and non-members who took the time to participate. Thanks also to OARA for their generous support of this event. Dates and topics for future workshops in this informational series will be announced shortly.
