The per capita amount of waste generated by Canadians continues to steadily rise. The increase can be attributed to factors including urbanization, consumerism, rapid product obsolescence and inadequate “3Rs” education and convenience-based lifestyles. Dillon works with our clients to develop long-term waste management strategies which are increasingly placing an emphasis on diverting waste from disposal.
Modern waste management programs include initiatives to encourage waste reduction, realizing re-use opportunities, optimizing materials and energy recovery and waste collection methods, providing safe management of residual waste and ensuring that initiatives are supported by effective policies and regulations.
