The WRS guideline and template document are designed specifically to meet provincial expectations for waste recycling planning as identified in the best practice question 1 in the Datacall regarding “development and implementation of an up-to-date blue box recycling plan as part of a Waste Diversion Strategy…”

CIF’s Waste Recycling Strategy Guideline and Template
The WRS guideline outlines a framework and principles for decision-making for all waste managers. It provides direction to develop long-term municipal waste recycling plans for blue box materials and can be used in conjunction with a Recycling Plan template to draft a community-specific recycling plan. The WRS guideline outlines a framework and principles for decision-making for all waste managers.
