Where does curbside material currently go now? What happens to this material?

Garbage is currently landfilled at County sites, with the majority of curbside garbage being exported to an energy-from-waste facility in Brampton. Organics are hauled to Hamilton for processing. Recycling containers (blue box) are hauled to Guelph, recycling paper (grey box) to Toronto for sorting. Leaf and yard waste and Christmas trees are processed at County facilities.
