    Presentation by Mirka Januszkiewicz, Director of Waste on Durhams integrated waste resource recovery system

    Making use of all 4Rs to divert waste resources from landfill

    Session Overview

  • Serving as the national voice of the plastics industry in Canada since 1943!

    Member driven advocacy association representing the majority of the 3,170 companies employing 95,000 workers in Canadas $30 billion plastics industry.

    Members from across the country and the value chain.

  • CPIA Core Focus Post Use Resource Recovery

    OBJECTIVES OF POST USE RESOURCE RECOVERY PROGRAM:

    Work collaboratively with stakeholders to improve the sustainability of plastics

    Increase the types and volumes of plastics diverted from landfill, through recycling & energy recovery options

    Increase the plastics recycling capacity within Canada

  • Plastics Packaging Collected in Canada for Recycling

    311 million kgs collected for

    recycling

    9% increase over 2012

    Bottle recycling still dominates

    23% increase in film and 172%

    increase in foam

    80% of collected plastics is

    reclaimed in Canada or US

  • Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) of Plastics Packaging

    March 2014, LCA study on benefits of plastic packaging looked at materials, manufacturing, distribution, usage & disposal

    Examined substituting all plastic packaging with non-plastic alternatives - found significant detrimental impacts on packaging weight, transport energy consumption & global warming

    4.4 more material used (by weight) 2X more energy used 2.3X more global warming potential

    PACKAGING

    Without plastics, distributors fleets would make

    50% more journeys = more cost and emissions

  • CPIA Projects to Increase Recycling of Plastic Packaging

    2014 pilot for ICI collection and recycling of film

    Partnership with Walmart & SC Johnson on return-to-retail film collection

    Ongoing partnership to manage PS foam at Montreal depot

    Support of other provincial and municipal programs to manage PS

  • Expanding Film Plastics Recycling to ICI Sector

    Project launched in April 2014

    Collecting/recycling stretch wrap from loading docks and back-of-store film, and educating retail tenants

    Material collected in first 4 months showed high levels of non-PE contamination

    Recycling partnership changed in August 2014; fine-tuned in Q4

    Case study and reporting in Q2 2015

  • Expanding Film Plastics Recycling to Retail

    Partnership with Walmart & SC Johnson announced in July 2014

    National return-to-retail model to collect a wide range of post-consumer film and bag materials

    Campaign includes in-store marketing branded bins, e-signage, in-aisle shelf-talkers

    Upcoming national PR campaign

    CPIA providing funding for in-store support and conducting material audits at 6 Ontario stores work ongoing

  • Industry-Municipal Partnership for Polystyrene (PS) Collection & Recycling

    Successful year-long pilot to collect PS at LaSalles Ecocentre in Montreal, Quebec made permanent in October 2014

    All types of PS collected PS foams & rigid; food containers, cushion packaging, panels

    Partnership with member company to use backhaul infrastructure and include recycled PS in durable construction products

    Plans to introduce backhaul model to other municipalities in 2015

  • Expanding PS Foam Collection New Densifier Technology

  • The 4Rs Benefits Plastics Sustainability

    Integrated Solid Waste Resource Management Systems utilizing 4Rs enhance opportunities for resource conservation, recycling & recovery

    Benefits to economy, environment & socially

    Plastics recycling & recovery increases from enhanced 4Rs systems

  • Summary: Plastics are Too Valuable to Waste

    1. Plastics make a positive contribution to the three pillars of sustainability and zero waste to landfill goals

    2. Plastic packaging has high value in recycling & energy recovery

    3. Communication and education needed to inform the public on the efficient use of plastics

    4. Partnership models create unique outreach, collection, recycling & resource recovery opportunities

    5. Integrated Solid Waste Resource Management Systems utilizing all 4Rs enhance opportunities for plastic resource conservation, recycling & recovery
