Is incineration an option?

Canadian Institute for Environmental Law and Policy (CIELAP) has just released a new report: Ontario’s Waste Management Challenge “Is Incineration an Option?”

This paper suggests that any discussion of incineration should only take place for waste that is truly residual, within a waste hierarchy framework that primarily seeks to prevent and reduce the generation of waste, and then seeks to achieve the highest possible rate of diversion.  The paper concludes with 11 recommendations for Ontario.  It, as well as our recent news release, can be downloaded from the CIELAP website.

Hello, it’s Elena here…It’s about time I post something

me-and-liz.jpgFormally, I am the Administration Chair of our local riding and will be the Office Staff Manager for the upcoming election.

In real life I’m a 3rd year University of Toronto Student who has a midterm about Urban Sustainability tomorrow but instead of reviewing for it is posting introductory messages about herself on the Danforth Greens Town Square.

To get a sense of my interests please feel free to check out my amateur website:, or a site me and my classmates made together: Yes, making websites on googlepages is about as technologically advanced as I’ll ever get.

That is all for now. Back to the books.
