Government of Canada’s Actions on plastic waste in federal operations

Government of Canada

The Government of Canada is taking practical steps, consistent with the waste management elements of the Greening Government Strategy, to better manage the use and disposal of plastics in its own operations.

The government’s steps to reduce plastic waste include new commitments:

• set explicit targets for diverting plastic waste
• eliminate the unnecessary use of single-use plastics in government operations
• leverage procurement practices to focus on sustainable plastic products
