Region of Waterloo is committed to continually reduce the amount of waste requiring landfill in the long-term. Reducing the amount of waste requiring landfill prevents environmental impacts on water from leachate and prolongs the use of current landfill capacity which delays the need for additional landfill space alternative waste disposal options. With the success of many diversion programs, a wide variety of materials are re-used and recycled which also reduces the need for new natural resources.
