Uncovering Sources of Plastics Waste in the Maritimes to Support Innovative Recycling Technologies

The project aims to collect and synthesize information pertaining to low-grade plastics waste streams in Atlantic Canada. The project will focus on type, quantity, quality, location, and current management practices of the plastics waste streams identified. Information will be gathered primarily from farmers, waste management groups, and key government informants in Nova Scotia. The intern will provide research support in all aspects of plastics waste streams as needed by Nova ReNew. The intern will provide a comprehensive report to Nova ReNew that covers the six themes discussed, as well as any other information requested by them.
