How much garbage are we shipping to NY?

It is often claimed that we are shipping huge amounts of garbage from Ottawa to New York state Landfills. An analysis of relevant recent data shows this not to be true. A comparison of how much garbage Ottawa sends to landfill disposal and how much is disposed of in local landfills shows that only between 7 and 9 percent of local garbage is shipped out of the region for disposal. The shipping of garbage to out of province landfills is driven strictly by economics and the bottom line of large multi-natiional waste management corporations.
