Bioplastics and their management
If bioplastics are to become an effective
alternative to petroleum-based plastic packaging, waste management systems need
to be able to incorporate these products. Municipalities have a role to play in
ensuring waste management systems are effective at controlling the flow of
these materials. As the Solid Waste Master Plan is developed discussions will
take place that explore what is being done at the federal and provincial levels
and what municipalities can do to compliment or add to these actions.
