Overview of the tonnage collected by program shows the positive effect of diverting waste at the curb.
Story behind the numbers
Annually, there are over 27 million pickups completed for all waste streams. Comparing the current tonnage collection and composition to previous years highlights the positive effect of diverting waste at the curb with the goal of extending the life of the Glanbrook landfill.
This is a volume measure. These numbers are driven by the composition of waste streams collected. Performance improvement will be realized as the proportion of divertible waste increases and the amount of waste being sent to landfill decreases. Regular checks to ensure the accuracy of these numbers are performed by staff.
