Implement MRes Best Practices

Projects Description

Peel Region will implement multi-res best practices: complete site visits, update database, increase recycling cart capacity, develop and deliver new P&E materials. The Region will also implement KPMG best practices and transition to a front-end bin system at larger buildings.

Over a timespan of 5 years, Peel Region boosted its MR program by introducing numerous enhancement initiatives within the 4 recommended MR best practices. These included: piloting on-board weigh scales for improved monitoring, converting 283 buildings to front-end collection, and adding 1000 front-end bins to its service, extensive resident engagement through 95 lobby displays. Capacity was more than doubled, and there was an overall increase in recycling generation, capture and diversion rates; most notably at buildings that switched to front-end bins. With this improvement, Peel reduced its MR collection costs by 41%.
