Accelerating Circular Economic Behaviour and Waste Reduction in the IC&I Sector

RCO Knowledge Sessions

 
Accelerating Circular Economic Behaviour and Waste Reduction in the
IC&I Sector

The Ontario Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change and Statistics Canada are consistent in reporting that Ontario’s waste diversion rate in the IC&I sector remains at a low 25 per cent. There are significant differences and various factors that contribute to the performance disparity between municipal and IC&I collection, including recycling and composting programs procured on a fee for service basis paid for on a building or portfolio basis that challenges economies of scale and costing structures. Coupled with a lack of regulated performance standards and reporting requirements there is limited means to motivate improvement.

In spring 2016 RCO convened an Advisory Committee representative of the diverse IC&I sector to inform a strategy and set of resources intended to advance the circular economy and improve waste reduction performance. Discussions from the committee inform the basis of this session.   

Topics to be explored:  

  • State of affairs for tracking and reporting performance, improving accuracy and transparency  
  • Barriers and opportunities to improve organics management
  • Linking procurement of goods and services with waste reduction objectives
  • Product and service providers shifting business models to respond
  • Role of the private sector and collective buying groups
