Canada Aims at Zero Plastic Waste

The Canadian plastics industry aims to make all plastic packaging recyclable or "recoverable" by 2030, and actually entirely diverted from landfills by 2040.

At the same time, environmental groups say they want to eliminate litter from single-use plastics like bags and cutlery by 2025.

The Canadian Plastics Industry Association and the Chemistry Industry Association of Canada announced Monday that they aim to make 100 per cent of plastic packaging recyclable or “recoverable” — divertable from landfills for use in products like chemical feedstocks, fuel and lubricants — by 2030.
