Welcome to OWMA

Welcome to the website of the Ontario Waste Management Association (OWMA) – the voice of the waste and resource management industry.

The OWMA works on behalf of all our Members to support and promote the waste and resource management industry.  We seek to work with government, regulators, our members, and other interested parties to bring about a sustainable system of waste and resource management for the Province of Ontario.

Our sector provides essential services to everyday living.  The organizations that make up the sector collect the 12.5 million tonnes of waste produced annually by households and businesses across the province and seek to treat it in an environmentally and economical responsible manner.

The waste management sector is in the process of a monumental change.  Previously materials the sector managed were regarded only suitable for disposal.  This is no longer the case. Waste collected is valued as a source of raw materials and energy that can be rerouted into Ontario’s economy after proper processing. Organizations in the sector are already spending millions to pursue these goals but innovation and technological advancement can only achieve so much.

The OWMA is at the forefront of debates about driving greater waste diversion and treating waste as a resource.  We are playing an important vital role in driving higher standards within the sector.
