Summary of Proposal:
The Ministry proposes to amend various regulations under the Environmental Protection Act (EPA) and the Environmental Assessment Act (EAA) to facilitate efforts of municipalities, waste generators and waste managers to divert more wastes from disposal and to better manage residual waste.
Waste managers and others will be able to make use of these regulatory provisions as tools in the development, implementation and operation of their waste management sites and systems, especially with respect to waste diversion. The proposed regulatory amendments pertain to activities for using select waste as alternative fuel, new and emerging technology and recyclable materials.
