Currently, over 70% of the non-hazardous solid waste generated in Ontario is disposed of in landfills. Approximately 45% of Ontario’s waste is disposed of in landfills located in Michigan. Disposal of residual waste in Ontario is undergoing a major shift. Pursuant to agreements made in 2006 between Ontario municipalities and federal and state representatives of Michigan, waste from Ontario municipalities will no longer be disposed in Michigan landfills post 2010. That has put enormous pressure on Ontario municipalities to seek alternative disposal solutions for the waste remaining after they reduce, reuse and recycle.
