City of Hamilton Public Policy for Elimination of Diaper Disposal in a Landfill

The City of Hamilton and McMaster University School of Engineering and Public Policy are developing a proposal for public policies that will divert disposal diapers from landfill. The project will recommend the most effective and efficient public policies to address the diaper waster diversion initiatives of the city to meet their waste reduction goal. The waste management goal of the City of Hamilton is to divert 65% of the waste from landfill to other uses by the end of 2011. In 2007 they achieved the diversion rate of 40$.
