    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    This study focuses on six environmental behaviours at the household level: use of reduced volume toilets; use of low-flow showerheads; use of compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFL); recycling; composting; and lowering temperatures. In 2006, almost half of Canadian households were very active across this range of environmental behaviours.

  • Articles and reports: 16-002-X200800110540
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    Diverting organic waste is one way of reducing the amount of waste being sent to landfills. Materials such as food waste and leaf and yard trimmings are often composted at home using compost bins or they are collected curbside and processed at centralized composting facilities. The study examines composting in Canada using data from the Waste Management Industry Survey and the Households and the Environment Survey.

  • Articles and reports: 16-201-X20050008657
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    Waste has always been a by-product of human activity. Indeed, all aspects of our lives - working, playing, eating - generate some form of waste. Managing it has been a challenge for millennia, more so since the Industrial Revolution of the 19th century gave rise to unprecedented industrialization and urbanization.Canadians are concerned today about many waste-related issues. These include:The generation of waste - how much garbage is produced in Canada, and is production going up or down? The impact of waste on the environment - has the way we deal with garbage changed over the years?What are governments and others doing to address these concerns?This article examines these issues by creating a statistical portrait of solid waste in Canada.

  • Table: 16F0002X
    Description:

    This report presents results and analysis of the Waste Management Industry Survey: Government Sector. The survey gathers information on waste collection, disposal and recycling practices of Canadian municipalities. The document provides an overview of waste management activities in large municipalities (5 000 or more residents). More than three quarters of the Canadian population are represented in this survey, allowing for estimates of municipal solid waste at the national level and for selected regional groupings. The report also presents information on waste management expenditures by local governments, including expenditures for services provided by contractors and by government employees.
