CEC Member Case Studies

We want to hear from you!

CEC members are encouraged to capture their facility waste management projects in the form of Case Studies. Depending on the stage and scope of your project, you are invited to share details with a PPG staff (Darlene or Chaya) and we can figure out how best to feature you. This could look like a short write-up with pictures or a full-fledged narrative using the PPG Member Case Study Template to share on this hub, and with the wider PPG network.

Air Canada worked with Scadding Court to creatively upcycle reusable masks and make a positive impact on the Toronto community.

TMU developed a strategy to divert 11,060kg of waste from landfill during their rebranding initiative.
