Annual Waste Audits and Reduction Work Plans

Under Ontario’s 3R’s Regulation, Ont. Reg. 102/94. annual waste audits and waste diversion work plans are also a mandatory requirement.

Companies can either do a visual waste audit which requires that the waste streams be identified and assessed by visually estimating the percentage of each waste category and then developing a waste reduction work plan to help reduce the amount of waste going to landfill.

The second option is a comprehensive waste audit which is a more in depth method where the each waste category is identified and weighed to determine the exact amount being disposed of. This includes both landfilled waste and recycled waste This method is particularly helpful in establishing more comprehensive waste diversion and recycling solutions.
