Integrated Waste Management: Public Policy Challenges and Potential Solutions


On February 1, 2007, the Public Policy Forum held a symposium in Toronto to discuss the public policy challenges and opportunities associated with implementing an integrated approach to waste management. The one-day event was attended by leaders from three levels of government, academia, the not-for-profit sector, and the private sector. Following the event, the Public Policy Forum convened three conference calls with participants who volunteered to continue a dialogue on integrated waste management.
