Automated Collections Systems
Details of the Recognition
Waste and Recycling Workers Week would like to say “Thank you!” for the excellent leadership you’ve given for the men and women in the waste industry. Through your support we are able to reach new heights.
The City of Guelph has converted from a manual bag-based
collection system to a fully automatic cart-based collection
system for the organics, recyclables and garbage streams. This
transition fulfills the Solid Waste Management Master Plan’s
recommendation to increase waste diversion rates and create
operational efficiency. The cart-based collection was phased
in over a three year period from 2012 to 2014.
