Province of Ontario

Waste Policy at the Province

The Province sets the rules and policies for how waste is handled in Ontario. The Province of Ontario defines different types of waste, how each type of waste is handled, where it can be processed, recycled or composted. The Provincial regulations outline how municipalities, businesses, manufacturers and others deal with waste - including siting of landfills, recycling facilities and incinerators.

TEA has worked with a coalition of environmental and health NGOs to advocate for good waste policy in Ontario for a number of years.
