11 Waste Compacted into bin

12 Issues with Waste Minimization New Building Many other building concerns are given preference – Performance Audit – Deficiency recovery – Negotiations with Builder Waste Removal Costs were not a high priority during 1 st year budget

13 Waste by the Numbers Prior to Registration, private waste removal in place Up to 65 Garbage Bins collected each month Cost of almost $3000 per month Monthly contract in place for a set amount of bins An extra fee ($36) applied to each additional bin Minimal Recycling in place– not a high priority

14 After Registration Switch to City of Toronto waste removal services Implementation of Recycling, and then later, Organic waste collection Substantial reduction in the number of garbage bins picked up – from 65 to 15 Significant increase in the amount of Recycled and Organic waste collected free of charge

15 Getting the System On-line Garbage Chute manufacturer contacted to reprogram tri-sorter to provide recycling Purchase of Organic Twin Bins Contact made with the City of Toronto to add Encore to their organic and recycle collection Conversion of several compactable bins to non-compactable recycle bins – no fee charged for non-compactable bin

16 Chute Tri Sorter Corner Layout and Twin Bin

17 Implementation of The System Organic under-the-sink bins distributed to all units during in-suite fire inspection Signs posted in each Disposal Room Notices posted on Recycle Room Door Information brochures posted in Mail Room and Elevator Notice Boards City of Toronto Blue Bags distributed to all suites

18 Why Encore? Brand New Building with all the tools to succeed Currently still incurring large waste removal fees More focus to be given towards waste minimization strategies Attitudes and lifestyle habits likely need to change Waste collection needs to be reduced a further 50% to avoid the citys garbage levy and to achieve the 70% waste diversion goal
