In January 2023 provincial regulation O. Reg 449/21 came into effect, making producers fully responsible for the management of certain types of hazardous waste. Dufferin County retained Cambium to develop a business case, to explore future options for the County’s Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Services while considering the shifts in responsibility from the new regulation.
Leveraging its experience working on similar programs and knowledge of operating parameters and costs, Cambium’s Waste Management team provided a thorough review of Dufferin County’s current operations and determined what options were available to best manage hazardous waste in the County. Options included event days, call-in service, mobile depots, permanent depot, and working with adjacent municipalities, and were accompanied by a cost-benefit analysis that took the County’s specific needs, including availability, hazardous waste capture, and traffic, amongst others, into consideration.
The analysis led to the recommendation, that was adopted by Dufferin County City Council in June 2023, to implement a mobile depot pending staff investigation into the logistics, costs, funding, and approvals.
Cambium’s Waste management services have been a key part of our service offering since the company was formed in 2006. The team is comprised of waste and sustainability professionals who have over 15 years of experience in completing various waste management, diversion, and compliance projects.
