WHERE - Regional Approach
  • PROVINCIAL SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT STRATEGY

11
Regional Approach
  • 15 Waste Management Zones

    successfully for several years, serving 17
    communities

  • 37 of waste stream is paper 30 organic
  • Example
  • 23,000 people on Burin Peninsula
  • 23,000 / 2.2 per HH 10,455 HH
  • 10,455 x ¾ tonne 7841 tonne per year
  • 7841 tonne / 52 151 tonne per week
  • 151 / 5 30 tonne per day
  • Get-to-half 15 tonne per day
