Key Issues

The voice of Ontario's waste management sector

 

The OWMA is the province’s largest, most effective environmental services association representing the waste management and recycling sector. The diverse make-up of our membership, which crosses both the private and public sectors, provides our association with unique insight into policy development and allows us to have a more effective and unified role in the public policy process. That is why governments at all levels recognize the OWMA as the top association representing the diverse interests of Ontario’s waste management sector.

Policy Process


The OWMA works with more than 140 member volunteers on 14 issue-specific committees to review legislative and regulatory proposals, and develop sound policy positions and responses to the government.

The work that these committees undertake keeps the OWMA at the forefront of the public policy debate on waste management issues in Ontario.
