33
Issue
  • Sorting labour turnover above other departments
  • Quality consistency currently dependent on labour
    skill
  • Disc screen inefficiencies
  • flattened non fibre materials stay with fibre
  • 8 ONP contamination 6 to 10 significant
    revenue loss

34
ONP Quality
Sample inbound material note flattened
containers
Sorted 8 ONP note contaminants (flattened
containers)
35
The Project
  • Examine efficiency of using optical sorting to
    remove containers contaminants from paper fibre
    sorting lines
  • Evaluate efficiency of removing fibre
    contaminants from 8 ONP
  • Evaluate further fibre sorting into OBB, OCC
    MIXED paper versus all as MIXED
  • Assess technology potential opportunities to
    utilize optical sorters in other operations

36
Key Features
  • Volumes processed exceed 500 tonnes/day
  • Operating experience with equipment gt 3 years
  • Extensive work to ensure all components of system
    maximized
  • Convinced contaminants can not be reduced
    elsewhere in system
  • Optical sorting technology advancing proven
    successful at sorting rigid materials
  • Manufacturers addressed volume throughput fibre
    buoyancy

37
Implementation/Risk
  • Implementation
  • major challenge to install equipment with least
    impact on production
  • RFP issued request to install in 2 phases
  • Risk
  • equipment does not work
  • 8 ONP quality below specs
  • labour reduction not realized

38
Tonnage Impacts
  • Contamination/outthrows expected reduced to lt 4
  • Throughput capacity not impacted
  • Optical sorters designed to process additional
    volume if total throughput increases
  • Container line volume will increase

39
Financial Impacts
  • Estimated cost 1.65M to install 2 optical
    sorters
  • Labour reduction 8 sorters/shift X 2 shifts
    475K annual cost reduction
  • Payback period 3.8 years
  • Equates to 1.81/tonne processing fee reduction
    for 1.4M potential savings over next 6.5 years
  • Threat of revenue loss on additional volumes
    minimized good markets City receives highest
    value (gt150K/yr)

40
Best Practices Impact
  • Increases capture rate
  • Reduces costs
  • Maximizes value of material

41
Next Steps
  • Visit manufacturer view latest application of
    proposed optical sorting equipment (Oct. 16 to
    18)
  • Award contract by end of Oct. 2006
  • Commence installation Feb. 2007
  • Complete system commissioning by May 2007

42
York Collection Processing Optimization Study
  • Shaun Spalding
  • The Regional Municipality of York

43
Project Summary
  • Recommend optimal compaction level that maximizes
    blue box collection while providing acceptable
    feedstock quality for MRF operations
  • Email shaun.spalding_at_york.ca
  • Website www.york.ca

44
The Issue
  • Compaction vehicles allow for collection
    efficiencies
  • but feedstock quality MRF operations impacted
    by compaction
  • How much compaction is too much?

45
The Project
  • Survey of North American municipalities (focus on
    Ontario)
  • gather compaction experiences practices
    relating to collection MRF processing
  • Compaction tests at York Region MRF
  • evaluate MRF processing performance with
    different compaction levels

46
Survey Results
  • 140 contacted 66 valid responses
  • 55 Ontario 6 Canada 5 USA
  • 6 have compaction policy
  • 5 policies based on vehicle manufacturers
    recommendation or legal transportation limits
  • 1 policy based on MRF operational requirements
    but not equipment suppliers recommendation
  • York Regions policy based on MRF equipment
    supplier recommendation (2.5 to 1)

47
York Region Baseline
  • Inbound Composition
  • Throughput 25 tonnes/hr
  • Residue Rate 7

48
Compaction Test Results
  • As compaction rate increased, MRF performance
    decreased

ONP Sample
  • ONP Mixed Paper quality below specs
  • residue rate residue increased

Residue Sample
Mixed Paper Sample
49
Conclusions
  • As compaction during collection increases MRF
    performance decreases
  • Implement BP only if practice benefits system as
    whole
  • Recommended compaction limit
  • 2 to 1 operationally effective
  • 2.5 to 1 upper limit

    BPs
  • quantify effects of province-wide BP adoption
    define Ontario net system BP cost for determining
    stewards contributions
  • Array of stakeholders need to have interests
    perspectives considered
  • Timeframe September 2006 to May 2007

68
Key Drivers
  • Blue Box program costs rising may increase with
    more diversion
  • Municipalities want to maximize diversion
  • Stewards concerned their share of program cost
    goes to some programs not considered best in
    class
  • Minister of Environment by 2008, Stewards
    obligation 50 of BP costs
  • Net 2008 system cost for fee setting to be
    determined based on rigorous identification of
    true BP costs
  • Lack of existing information to define BP costs
  • Municipal concern unique characteristics not
    fully considered in previous classification
    costing methods

69
Project Work Plan Phases (1)
  • Start Up
  • establish a robust Project Management foundation
    engage key stakeholders in project
  • Insight
  • review municipal programs, identify Ontario
    international BPs
  • Design
  • develop blueprints for programs quantify
    program-wide effects of adopting BPs

70
Project Work Plan Phases (2)
  • Implement
  • help municipalities adopt BPs provide options
    to distribute funding through EE Fund
  • Sustain
  • provide tools for institutionalizing adoption of
    BPs

71
Key Milestones Deliverables
72
Best Practices Working Definition for This
Project
  • Best Practices are defined as waste system
    practices that affect Blue Box recycling programs
    that result in the attainment of provincial
    municipal Blue Box material diversion goals in
    the most cost-effective way.

73
Attributes of the Best Practices Definition
  • Oriented to attainment of Blue Box Program goals,
    as defined in legislation Blue Box Program Plan
  • Municipalities determine programs within
    legislative guidelines
  • Diversion is a goal cost-effectiveness in
    achieving diversion is a goal

74
BP Criteria
  • BPs are
  • measurable, comparable
  • transferable, replicable
  • result in reduced cost (minimizing unit cost)
    while maintaining or improving diversion
  • result in net positive benefits as it relates to
    costs diversion
  • temporal in nature - continuous improvement will
    yield new BPs
  • could be operational, promotional,
    administrative, legislative, political, etc.

75
Next Steps
  • Selecting participant programs
  • Planning conducting program reviews
  • Additional BP research
  • Reporting results recommendations to
    municipalities MIPC

76
Municipal Consultation Sessions on Blue Box Best
Practices
  • Michael J. Birett
  • AMRC

77
Project Summary
  • Obtain input on applying Best Practices (BP) to
    Blue Box funding
  • Objectives
  • raise municipal awareness
  • identify several good practices indicators
  • identify barriers to implementation
  • facilitate informed policy development by MIPC
    others
  • Additional information on Knowledge Network

78
Issue
  • Ministerial direction
  • begin paying to BP in 2008
  • Funding for 2008 based on 2006 activities
  • Low stakeholder level of awareness
  • Needed to engage stakeholders in collaborative
    effort

79
The Project
  • Conducted 4 consultation sessions
  • Sessions explored
  • potential BP indicators activities
  • guiding principles concerns
  • approaches to funding models
  • Background info provided on
  • past funding decisions
  • MIPC activities

80
Practices, Indicators Principles
  • BP must
  • respect municipal autonomy apply equally to
    stewards
  • recognize municipal contractual obligations
    provide predictable municipal funding
  • BP must not
  • restrict diversion or be reduced to a cost
    cutting exercise
  • Possible BPs
  • user pay, bag limits, tracking diversion
  • numerous outstanding questions concerns
  • Possible indicators
  • kg/hhld/year
  • recovery overall
  • lack of consensus

81
Approaches to Funding
  • /tonne vs. of total costs funding model
  • mixed support
  • PEER model
  • potentially complex with high degree of
    uncertainty

82
Conclusions
  • BPs rarely absolute
  • True BPs transferable
  • Application may increase system costs
  • Nexus ruling may prevent development of incentive
    based funding systems

83
Next Steps
  • Best approach may focus on outlying
    municipalities
  • Results forwarded to BP Management Team
  • AMRC consulting with members providing further
    input to MIPC

Issue
  • About 8 to 10 MRFs in region
  • Limited recent investment
  • Regional capacity not available coordination
    among municipalities limited (distance)
  • RFP comprehensive recycling services
  • Processing is a stumbling block
  • Regional recycling Is it possible?

87
Phase 1 - Key Outcomes Best
Practices
  • MRF London 10M Regional 15M
  • Developing partnerships take time (1 year?)
  • Public ownership has strong merits
  • Regional MRF has strong merits
  • Regional cooperation has benefits
  • 2 Stream MRF leads thinking
  • Incentive-based fee essential
  • Next step - RFP for 2 MRFs

88
Cooperative Opportunities
  • Marketing recyclables . . . clout
  • Purchasing . . . from services to products
  • Advertising . . . Wouldnt it be nice if . . .
  • Knowledge sharing . . . Council reports,
    background studies, research

89
Tipping Fee Incentive (TFI)
  • Invested into capital works
  • Lowers processing cost of regional partners
  • London capital operating
  • Partners capital operating TFI
  • Regional partners less likely without incentive

2007 Blue Box Funding
  • Glenda Gies
  • Waste Diversion Ontario

108
2007 Funding Methodology (1)
  • MFAM considered
  • overly complex - hard to explain understand
  • difficult to use for budget predictions
  • MIPC considered options to
  • reduce complexity improve predictability
  • maintain financial incentive to improve program
    performance

109
2007 Funding Methodology (2)
  • MIPC recommended WDO Board approved
  • setting aside MFAM
  • establishing 2 levels of funding for programs
    above below cost bands
  • recognizes programs can improve
  • defined by of each programs reported net
    system cost

110
2007 'Reasonable Cost' Band
  • 2007 14M
  • Municipal portion 7M
  • 80 shared by all programs 20 shared by
    programs above reasonable cost band for group
  • gives the two levels of of net cost
  • programs above cost bands receive 982,000 less
    cash payments than programs below cost bands
  • Cost bands determined using EE Factor
  • net cost/tonne
  • recovery

111
2007 Funding Amounts
  • MIPC has deferred issue to November
  • Funding requires recalculation to reflect WDO
    Boards decision to remove Wine Spirit tonnes,
    costs revenues from net system cost for
    purposes of 2007 Blue Box stewards fees

112
2007 Fee Setting Process
  • WDO reported net system cost to Stewardship
    Ontario in August
  • Stewardship Ontario
  • calculated 2007 fees began consultation on 2007
    fees August 31, 2006
  • suspended 2007 Blue Box fee setting process
    September 12, 2006, pending determination of
    effect of Wine Spirit deposit system on net
    system cost

113
2007 Fees Timeline
  • 2007 fees must be approved December 31, 2006
  • WDA did not anticipate absence of approved fees
  • If 2007 fees not approved, legal position of
    BBPP, Stewardship Ontario, 2007 fees 2007
    municipal funding is uncertain

114
Fees on Deposit Containers
  • WDA S.35 prohibits Blue Box IFO from levying fees
    on Brewers deposit containers
  • Stewardship Ontario will likely be prohibited
    from levying fees on Wine Spirit deposit
    containers
  • number of regulatory options available

115
2007 Fee Setting Options
  • Assume Stewardship Ontario will not have
    authority to levy Wine Spirit deposit
    containers
  • remove 100 of Wine Spirit tonnes, costs
    revenues
  • Assume Stewardship Ontario will have authority to
    levy Wine Spirit deposit containers
  • remove estimated Wine Spirit containers
    returned for deposit
  • fees would require adjustment when actual
    quantity of Wine Spirit deposit containers
    remaining in BB system known

116
2007 Fee Setting Process
  • WDO Board decided to assume Stewardship Ontario
    will not have authority to levy Wine Spirit
    deposit containers
  • Approach is
  • consistent with WDA
  • results in shared costs spread over fewer tonnes
    (i.e. higher fees for stewards)
  • reduces possibility of 2 sets of 2007 fees

117
Adjusting Net System Cost
  • Stewards legal obligation to fund municipal Blue
    Box programs commenced on Feb 1, 2004
  • steward legal obligation for funding year
  • funding is not retroactive to data year
  • Most current cost data utilized for fee setting
  • workable in a steady state system
  • requires adjustment during transition period

118
Adjusting Tonnes
  • Methodology
  • identified quantity of Wine Spirit containers
    as of containers marketed in 2005
  • removed 11/12ths of Wine Spirit containers
    (Feb.-Dec.)
  • Calculation
  • 382,226 tonnes of containers marketed in 2005
  • 81,126 tonnes of Wine Spirit containers
    marketed
  • 11/12ths 74,366 tonnes of Wine Spirit
    containers

119
Adjusting Revenues
  • Methodology
  • based on average revenue/marketed tonne
