What are we tracking?

The Eastview Landfill records all of the tonnage of recyclable materials that is collected and processed at the Material Recycling Facility (MRF), both from residential and commercial sources.

 

 

How are we measuring this?

The recyclable material is weighed as collected and crosses the scale at the Eastview Landfill. This tonnage is then compiled in the scale program and reported to the Province annually.

What progress are we making?

The MRF continues to see a steady stream of recyclable material enter the facility year over year.
 
As all tonnage collected in the MRF extends the life of the Landfill, the City will work to increase awareness and education to residents on the importance of diversion, with the goal of increasing collection rates in future years.
