The purpose of this paper is to assess the issue of waste management in Stanhope Township and compare it to waste management practices in other regions of Ontario. Background to the Township itself and its current waste management endeavour is outlined, followed by a discussion of the changing waste management structure within Ontario. The most prominent waste management practices worldwide are illustrated pointing out both the positive and negative attributes of each and focusing on the relevant environmental, economic, and social aspects. A discussion of how bioregionalism correlates with the principles of a waste-reduced society is presented. In conclusion, suggestions aimed specifically at Stanhope Township are put forth.
