The “Waste Wiki” is a university run/operated research project that attempts to bridge the gap between academia, industry and government in issues surrounding waste.
The Waste Wiki is….:
1) A platform to make data and research accessible to the broadest range of stakeholders
2) A research initiative designed to advance understanding surrounding diversion behavior and the impacts of waste management policy
3) A research collaboration with a diverse range of stakeholders (private, public, NGO etc.), to develop evidence based policies, and help guide legislation at both the provincial and national level
Our goal is to work towards a sustainable waste management system that minimizes environmental impacts, is economically tenable, and socially inclusive.
