Our Goal: Reduce waste generation to limit resource use, greenhouse gas emissions, preserve habitats and resources and decrease management costs
Waste collection and recycling are a Region of Peel responsibility. Regardless the City will seek ways to reduce waste corporately and within the community because solid and organic waste uses significant land resources for landfills , contributes to GHG emissions and poor air quality, and poses a risk to water resources as a result of landfill leachate. Waste reduction, recycling and reuse can help to preserve our resources, reduce pollution and management costs.
