Discussions about recycling and the effectiveness of programs intended to reduce waste going to landfill are constantly kept open with responsible waste companies. CBC News recently published an article about contaminated recyclables which help everyone understand the difficulties waste management companies and the city go through when trying to recycle and sort. It’s a great quick read that sheds light on how small amounts of contamination can hinder large scale processing.
It out lines the dangers, difficulties and extra costs related to processing recyclables, however, this applies not only to city garbage but also the private sector. For businesses across Ontario, waste management companies rely on you, the people and staff, to help do their part by ensuring only the correct materials are put into the recycling bins. More and more often business are increasing their disposal budgets and choosing to source separate.
