Food waste continues to be a huge challenge in Canada, according to the March 2018 report of the Commission for Environmental Cooperation (CEC). According to the CEC report, 396 kilograms of food is lost or wasted per capita each year across the food supply chain in Canada. Longer-term solutions will need to involve legislative and behavioural changes - for industry and consumers. But what can be done about the problem right now?

The new end-of-life vehicle (ELV) processing regulations now in force in Ontario and coming to other provinces are having a significant impact on the automobile recycling sector. With increased depollution requirements, Iris-Mec equipment was the right choice. Since launching Iris-Mec in Canada in 2014, REC has sold many systems to used auto parts and scrap metal recycling customers., based in Waterloo, Ontario, set out to find the safest, easiest-to-use, and highest-quality solution to enable its auto recycling customers to meet the new standards. REC focused its search on Europe, where similar regulations have been in place longer, and concluded that
With China closing its doors to lower-grade recyclables, and with composting programs continuing to underperform, keeping wet organic waste, black bag waste, as well as MRF residuals material out of landfill is becoming an increasingly tough challenge.

Canadian Nuclear Laboratories employs new shredder to convert scrap wood into bulk material for landfill cover
At the beginning of 2016, Chalk River Laboratories (CRL), Ontario/Canada, which is part of Canadian Nuclear Laboratories (CNL), put into operation a Lindner Urraco 75 DK mobile shredder. The machine was supplied by Waterloo, Ontario-based Recycling Equipment Canada, Lindner America's authorized Canadian dealer. On site at the company's landfill for non-contaminated waste, which is operated by the CNL's Decommissioning & Waste Management division, the shredder is in permanent use crushing wood, plastics and light materials from demolition, renovation and new building work. On the 40 km² site with around 160 buildings, this debris occurs primarily in the form of pallets, construction timber, trees and brush, asphalt, metal containers, plastic pipes and furniture. Apart from significantly reducing the volume of the waste, the Urraco also assumes the task of preparing the wood fraction into an easily compactible bulk product that can be mixed with regular daily cover material and spread over the working face of the landfill at the end of every working day. In this way, the company complies with the regulation to cover the waste collected during the course of a day with a 150 mm thick layer of wood and soil mixture, thus mitigating the need to bring in earth especially for this purpose.
