Solid waste diversion and disposal – Solid waste diversion rate by source, Canada

Solid waste diversion and disposal – Solid waste diversion rate by source, Canada The Canadian Environmental Sustainability Indicators (CESI) program provides data and information to track Canada's performance on key environmental sustainability issues. The Solid waste diversion and disposal indicator reports on the total quantity and the quantity per person of non-hazardous solid waste diverted and disposed by municipal governments and businesses in the waste management industry, the diversion rate by source (residential and non-residential) and the types of materials diverted. Tracking the trends in solid waste diversion and disposal helps us to understand how waste management and recycling programs are working. It also provides a measure of how efficiently Canadians use their resources, which has implications for the natural environment. Information is provided to Canadians in a number of formats including: static and interactive maps, charts and graphs, HTML and CSV data tables and downloadable reports. See the supplementary documentation for the data sources and details on how the data were collected and how the indicator was calculated.
