from trash to cash: is garbage the future of metro vancouver?

The future of the Vancouver Metro is rubbish.
Once the garbage is thrown away and forgotten, the garbage is subject to strict scrutiny.
The region aims to increase the diversion rate of landfill sites and incineration from the current 55 to 70 by 2015 to 80 by 2020.
There are good environmental reasons for this move, but the main reason is to restore something of value.
Garbage is increasingly seen as an opportunity, not a responsibility, an opportunity to smell money like methane.
\"We won\'t call it garbage --
This is a resource . \"C.
Environment Minister Terry Lake
\"Whether we reuse it or extract energy from it . . . . . . It\'s resource management, not throwing it on the ground.
\"The relationship between the region and this resource continues to develop --

Recycling has never been so easy.
The municipal Blue Box project is dealing with

This does not include large private companies like Telus and Shaw that run their own recycling projects.
The collection system is scheduled to undergo a major expansion in 2014, the date on which the province has requested the launch of a recycling plan for the packaging and printing paper integrated industry.
This will mean recycling many things that are not collected in the Blue City of Vancouver
Box system, such as plastic, milk box, foam plastic packaging, etc.
Looking ahead, more products, including carpets, furniture and wood waste, will be recycled.
Manufacturers are also under greater pressure to use less packaging and design products that are easy to recycle.
Waste managers also foresee a day. of-the-

\"Residents are encouraged to do their part to reduce and reuse, both of which are more important than recycling.
\"We need to think about all our waste,\" said Greg Moore, president of the Metro, the mayor of noble Port Lin.
\"We just buy things, we use it, we throw it away, it\'s been in the landfill in 100.
The best way to solve this problem is not to make waste in the first place.
It has changed people\'s habits all the time.
\"The region encourages residents to reduce waste per capita by 10 per cent by 2020, in addition to recycling.
The Vancouver Metro believes that it has to go from the traditional \"cradle-to-

This concept comes from setbacks.
But we can\'t act alone.
Malcolm Brodi, chairman of the Vancouver Metro Zero Waste Committee and mayor of Oman, added that the goal was to achieve national cooperation through the Canadian municipal federation representing nearly 2,000 communities.
\"One of the challenges is scale,\" he said . \"
\"We can only do something in this region and in this province.

Running the recycling program plays a key role in achieving these goals.
The province\'s recycling regulations of 2004 require industry to manage its products from production to scrapping, with a target recovery rate of 75 for recycling or reuse. Under a phased-
In this regard, the recycling work was expanded to electrical appliances such as electric tools, sewing machines, lawn mowers, flashlights and desk lamps in July 1.
Consumers can now put these items in the recycling bin for free, because the collection, transportation and recycling costs of parts such as metals and plastics are high and are already included in the original selling price of the item.
The next phase took place in May 19, 2014, when the expansion of packaging and paper product recycling took effect at a cost of $60 million to $100 million per year.
It will require industrial recycling of packaging that is not covered in most municipal blue box projects, including some grades of plastic, foam plastic and milk boxes.
\"This is a big deal to change the rules of the game,\" said Brok McDonald, chief executive of the B. recycling commission. C.
\"It is a difficult task to fully understand this.
\"The Canadian Press Association has requested a one-year delay in this expansion.
The municipality also expressed uncertainty about the 2014 th.
No probation was given in the province.
Producers and consumers must fully understand the full cost of the product, says Lake.
\"It won\'t happen until you price these things,\" the minister said . \".
\"When you\'re pricing throughout the life cycle of your product, you get a variety of ideas and innovations that reduce waste.
\"Anyone who has attended a Christmas or birthday party has witnessed the huge excess of packaging that we face, most of which have been landfill.
\"When it starts, the expanded recycling of the packaging will only apply to the home and not to the industrial, commercial or institutional premises.
\"We want to go step by step and not create too much too quickly,\" Lake said . \".
The expanded collection of packaging is likely to be part of the bluebox system.

The initiative of paper is a huge undertaking, with the goal of building a standardized collection system that is easy for people to understand and use, taking into account the diversity of packaging.
\"We hope that from a consumer perspective, nothing will change and there will be a seamless transition,\" Landon said . \".
He explained that, according to the model used in the packaging and printing of paper in Quebec, Manitoba and Ontario, municipalities managed part of the system and the industrial fund. But in B. C.
The province has put the industrial sector in charge of the development of its projects.
\"This is a transformation from a taxpayer --

\"Our idea is that we will take more effective and cost-effective measures --
Capture more materials effectively.
\"Despite the addition of new materials, Landon believes that the number of materials in the blue box is getting lighter as manufacturers turn to lighter packaging.
Glass, for example, is being replaced by more and more plastic.
The question for the future, he says, is how to compress a lot of lightweight material to make sure \"you won\'t be airlifted \".
However, 2014 does not in any way mark the end of the recycling improvement.
Future efforts will focus on the development of a standard set of materials by manufacturers.
\"While it\'s hard to imagine what future products will look like,\" Henderson said, the goal is to design them with the entire lifecycle --

Landon said efforts were being made to target \"plastic clam shells\" used in agricultural products such as bakeries or strawberries \".
The idea is to move to an ordinary pet (

More efficient recycling.
He said there was also a problem with the label glue on the existing container.
It is so powerful that the label does not fall off during the recycling process and the recycled plastic will eventually be contaminated.
At the international level, a global agreement on packaging sustainability was issued in 2011 as part of the Consumer Goods Forum, which involved multinational grocery giants Tesco and Unilever, A large multinational company specializing in groceries and other consumer goods.
Mr. Landon said his grocery store membership belongs to the e-commerce catalogue, a database that allows manufacturers and retailers to exchange information.
\"We want to expand this scope, including information on sustainable development,\" he said . \".
This result makes it easier for consumers to learn about making sustainable choices for packaging in global markets.
While Canada alone cannot decide on the choice of global packaging, it is likely to be a pilot project that benefits the bigger picture, a process that could take three to five years, he said.
\"The challenge we face is that the packaging world is growing rapidly,\" he added . \"
\"There\'s a lot of innovation going on.
\"Back to the Vancouver Metro, the amount of garbage has started to drop, from 3.
The output in 2007 was 2 million tons, about 1 ton.
Last year there were 3 million tons.
This is partly due to the blue box recycling program in the area, as well as its evolving kitchen scrap program, which is already ingrained in the Vancouver Metro Community, it allows residents to put organic waste such as chicken bones, greasy pizza boxes, orange peel and coffee grounds into green trash cans to pick up goods on the side of the road.
