OWMA launches second annual landfill, organics surveys
As part of the Ontario Waste Management Association's ongoing efforts to provide quality, industry specific data in an accessible, effective format, we are launching our second annual landfill and organics surveys to refine and build on our existing database.
Last year, the OWMA invested in the Re-TRAC Connect data collection and analysis platform to gather annual facility-based information that could help the business community and different levels of government learn about broader industry trends.
Thanks to the participation of our members and other organizations within the industry, our first surveys were a great success.
The information is helped to inform businesses with planning decisions while assisting Ontario's Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change as it moves forward with its Strategy for a Waste-Free Ontario.
To help improve this database, we are asking for you to update the information about your facilities. Our objective is to create a continually evolving platform for managing and monitoring the performance of solid waste collection, processing and disposal systems across Ontario.
If you're an existing user, please, log on to Re-TRAC Connect and update the information on your account. Your account name is your email address. If you're forgotten your password, please click here.
If you're a new user, please, contact the OWMA by emailing email@example.com or calling (905) 791-9500.
A training video on the platform can be found at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ojsCQLFeNJk&feature=youtu.be We are requesting hat the survey be completed as soon as possible. Again, confidentiality of company specific data is guaranteed within this system.
If you have any other questions, please contact us at your earliest convenience. We appreciate the industry's support for this initiative as we continue working toward our goal of establishing the most comprehensive and accurate source of waste management in Ontario.
