Reducing and managing waste: contact information
Provinces and territories are responsible for the licensing and permitting of waste management operations including recycling centres, landfills and hazardous waste facilities. If you have questions regarding these operations, please contact your provincial or territorial Environment Ministry. A list of provincial and territorial contacts is available for reference.
Municipalities generally offer municipal solid waste collection, recycling and disposal services for their citizens.
It is important to manage hazardous waste properly. To find out how or which services are available in your area, please contact your municipality.
