The residential sector is responsible for about 40% of all solid waste generated in Edmonton. Even though much of our residential waste is diverted from landfill, the quantities generated here are large. The challenge is reducing the amount of solid waste generated while increasing the amount of waste diverted from landfills in an economically feasible way.
