The State of Practice of Organic Waste Management and Collection in Canada


The primary objective of this effort is to compile information to summarize the generation and management of organic waste in Canada in a meaningful way to inform solid waste decision-making.

The diversion of organic municipal waste materials (i.e. food waste, green waste) through options such as composting and anaerobic digestion (AD) has been a growing focus throughout Canada.

Initiatives are largely focused at the provincial or municipal level through waste-related sustainability policies. As policies and collection programs become more widespread, it is important to have accurate information regarding the amount and types of organic waste generated as well as the infrastructure available for managing it.
