Fines for Improper Waste Separation

Toronto Condo News
Publication date:
September 26, 2018
Article Summary: 

In September 2018, Toronto implemented fines for condo corporations that fail to properly separate organic and recyclable waste from regular garbage. Condo communities that do not comply with waste separation regulations may face increased costs, including fines by the city, private waste collection, and higher internal sorting costs. To avoid these expenses, condos can follow best practices recommended by Wilkinson Chutes, such as converting a single garbage chute into a tri-sorter capable of handling separated waste, delivering recyclables and organics to a central location, and providing a separate designated area for used cooking oil. Proper implementation of these practices could reduce generated garbage by up to 90%, saving tens of thousands of dollars in annual drain clearing costs.
