Achieving Mandatory Commercial Recycling with Metro Vancouver Edmonton, AB composting facility. Photo from City of  Edmonton Website  Marina de Pina-Jenkins April 6, 2016 Prepared at the request of  Metro Vancouver In partial fulfilment of  GEOG 419: Research in Environmental Geography,  for Dr. David Brownstein GEOG 419 !1Executive Summary Proposals:  • Create or use an online social network or platform as a tool to help facilitate rating and complaints based enforcement for business recycling. This will provide both outreach and education as well as a centralized place in the Greater Vancouver Region for data collection and communication between stakeholders  • Facilitate the creation of  a bylaw for mandatory commercial recycling or by adding a clause to existing bylaws to include businesses in current mandatory recycling practices • Outline responsibilities between stakeholders, particularly for small-medium sized businesses Academic Findings: • Target small-medium sized businesses because they have the least financial and human resources to spend time improving their waste practices • Support policy tools with outreach, especially targeting lower income zones and smaller businesses • Recycling programs will only be successful if  they are convenient, low cost and efficient for all stakeholders Interview Findings:  • From the municipalities interviewed, case-by-case solutions such as lottery system, franchising, mandatory service fees and enforcement are needed because most of  the business sector waste and recycling collection is currently being provided by private haulers. All stakeholders should be taken into account when coordinating these compromises • Soft enforcement methods such as education work best and fines are only used as a last resort for business that refuse to comply • Front loading trucks most efficient and would allow expansion of  collection service, but this requires large initial investment • Communication is needed between stakeholders: businesses, haulers, processing facilities and municipalities.

The Metro Vancouver area is a partnership with 22 municipalities, one electoral area and one Treaty First Nation that collaboratively plans for and delivers regional scale services (Metro Vancouver website). Each of  these municipalities has a different way of  dealing with our waste, ranging from how it is picked up to where its taken to be recycled and what happens after that. In this report I am trying to answer the question: what is the best approach to achieve mandatory recycling for small to medium sized commercial business that could be applied to Metro Vancouver area? This project will go beyond the different approaches municipalities currently use. Some factors of  interest are the different ways of  measuring the success of  these programs and which policy tools (regulation) are most effective. I will maintain a focus on different potential strategies municipalities can use to encourage waste diversion among businesses in the Metro Vancouver area. This means there will be no discussion of  potential improvements by haulers or the recycling processors. 	 The reason why the report is focusing on small to medium sized businesses is because most municipalities already have programs in place for single family (SF) and multi family (MF) homes, so the next step to increase waste diversion is to tackle recycling by businesses. There are many stakeholders in this problem: Metro Vancouver, the greater Vancouver member municipalities, recycling processors, garbage and recycling haulers, and businesses. The landscape of  businesses in the Metro Vancouver area is mostly small to medium sized according to Statistics Canada, as can be seen in my example image of  the City of  Vancouver, to see how these small businesses are located around the city (see Zoning Map images).  Definitions (Some of  these were taken from the Mandatory Commercial Recycling Research (1996) report) -“Flow control” is the municipality’s ability to control where the haulers take the waste for processing. The flow, is the movement of  waste from generator to the processing facility.  -“Hauler” is a company employed in the transport of  goods or materials by road, in our case transported between waste collection to a processing facility -“Municipal waste” means garbage, household and commercial waste, industrial lunchroom or office waste and yard/landscape waste. -“Processing facility” is a company establishment that delivers fast, high-volume, high-throughput transaction processing, handling large, continuous loads of  essentially simple transactions across GEOG 419 !3large, geographically dispersed networks. In our context processing facilities receive recycling materials and organics to process them to be made into different outputs either for sale or for export.  -“Waste generators” are synonymous with residents, businesses and industries that create and generate waste outputs -“Franchise system” or a “lottery system” is a way to distribute hauling companies in specific areas of  the city. This works by zoning the city, and bidding off  zones to the hauling companies, in order to decrease green house gases and improve efficiency of  collection. This system is in contrast to a free market which means that haulers can get customers from wherever they want in the city.

Zones of  interest:  Red-Commercial  Light Blue-Light Industrial Green-Historical districts Pink and Purple-Comprehensive developmentMethod 	 I have chosen to include five expert interviews, with three municipalities in Canada and two in the United States in order to exemplify how various municipalities are implementing business recycling programs. These were chosen based on their similarity to Metro Vancouver area and how advanced they are in their recycling policies and implementation compared to Metro Vancouver. The criteria I used to inform this similarity is by population size, business profile, and current waste management program. This information can be preliminarily found in the “Required Recycling and Incentive Programs” document and online information by the municipalities themselves. This research is complying with all UBC ethics protocols, by requiring interviewees to provide consent in order for us to use the information they provided. The eight survey topics were as follows:  1) what programs do they have to increase recycling and waste reduction,  2) how is the program enforced,  3) how do they measure the success of  these programs,  4) main challenges to the program and  5) biggest success of  their program?  	 This paper will compare the pros and cons of  all the different methods present among the interviewed jurisdictions. I will compare programs, and deduce various options using the model outlined in Barlishen & Baetz’s research to help decision making (1995.)  In the planning and implementation of  municipal solid waste composting and recycling programs, local or regional waste management agencies can use their model. It clearly shows various options and helps narrow down choices based on cost breakdown and knowledge-based system techniques.  Continuing forward, the report will compare all this information in order to see which options could be most effectively applied to the Metro Vancouver region, and which cases they can learn the most from. Literature Review 	 The literature argues that optimal levels of  recycling occur from an integrated approach to mandatory recycling. It is necessary to target smaller and medium sized business because research suggests that larger businesses are most likely to participate in recycling programs (Clarke & Maantay, 2006). Additionally it is important to give more attention to lower income GEOG 419 !5neighbourhoods (or zones), as they are less likely to participate (Maclaren, & Yu, 1997; Oskamp, et al. 1994). Even though policy tools tend to achieve greater recycling rates, it is important to support these policy tools with educational outreach and address psychological factors influencing recycling (Seacat & Northrup, 2010; Viscusi et al., 2007).  	 The reports I looked at for my research were especially constructive to my understanding of  what municipalities are currently doing to implement mandatory recycling within the Industrial Commercial and Institutional (ICI) sector. Reeve Consulting produced a report for Metro Vancouver in 2014 comparing three different policy tools Metro Vancouver could utilize to further regional gains in waste diversion and recycling in the ICI and Multi Family (MF) sectors (Draft Policy Models for ICI Sector Recycling Incentives, 2014, pg. 3). To create incentive based approaches for disposal ban enforcement, they compared three policy models: waste hauling incentive program, waste generator certification and a mandatory recycling bylaw. The Dillon report (2012) was useful to get a general understanding of  recycling practices for different cities. They established that mandatory recycling programs are one of  the strongest tools to achieve Metro Vancouver’s waste diversion goals.  	 In order to make these programs a success, Bacot et.al. show that, crucial to program establishment and commercial-sector participation, are the time required for participation and its convenience. It is also known that user fees (often referred to as ‘‘pay as you throw’’ systems) on garbage collection, have significant impacts on recycling levels for all materials except toxic chemicals, and mandatory recycling programs on particular items have significant effects on recycling for almost all materials. Limits on the amount of  garbage that can be placed at the curb, and providing free recycling units (or bins) under user fee systems, however, do not have the desired impact of  increasing recycling intensity and instead have a negligible or detrimental impact on recycling. Ferrara & Missios (2005) find that user fees (often referred to as ‘‘pay as you throw’’ systems) on garbage collection have significant impacts on recycling levels for all materials except toxic chemicals, and mandatory recycling programs on particular items have significant effects on recycling for almost all materials. Similarly, Sidique et al. (2010) share the results which indicate that variable pricing of  waste disposal increases the rate of  recycling. Other policy variables such as the enactment of  recycling ordinances and cumulative expenditures on recycling education are also found to be effective measures to increase recycling rate. 	 McDavid & Mueller (2008) analyze factors that predict the efficiency of  residential recycling collection services. Their study was helpful in showing improved efficiency can reduced costs for municipalities who recycle. One of  the most significant findings is the lack of  a relationship between private-sector companies collecting recyclables and the overall efficiency of  collection operations. This will be discussed further in the interview section, with the question of  GEOG 419 !6measuring success of  programs. So to summarize further, it can be said that some of  the most effective options should be outlined in the specific policy to ensure highest efficiency.  Interview Findings 	 Five expert interviews have been conducted, with many municipalities in Canada and the United States. Our gathered information from City of  Vancouver, City of  San Diego, City of  Burnaby, City of  New Westminster and District of  North Vancouver will help Metro Vancouver compile information about what some municipalities are doing and see which practices are working best and which ones can be improved. The main challenge in the interviews is comparing information that is not uniform, or comparing municipalities that are at different levels of  development in their program implementation. Meaning that in general municipalities start with garbage collection for residences, then start recycling programs and the ICI sector tends to be left for last.  	 Here are some of  the main points of  the interviews organized categorically by the interview topics described in the methods: 1. What programs do they have to increase recycling and waste reduction? 	 Only one mentioned working with local volunteers and grassroots movements in order to help provide outreach. Although this may be time consuming to set up, its a great way to bridge the gap between implementation of  the program and providing resources to businesses to help them follow the program. This could be implemented in each municipality to engage the public and use volunteers to provide essential services without adding costs to the program.  2. How is the program enforced? 	 Some enforcement mechanisms used are the amounts charged through utility taxes, or through business license fees, depending on how much of  the services are provided by the city vs by private haulers. However, this information would only be useful to local governments in planning their bylaws. Fines are used as a last case resort to ensure everyone is following the rules and is not an income to fund the programs in any way. 3. How do they measure the success of  these programs? 	 Data collection was brought up as a challenge for many of  our interviewees who didn’t have flow control in their municipality, because they can’t collect data from haulers or businesses GEOG 419 !7directly, so they must rely on information willingly given to them by haulers and processing facilities (which they aren’t required to do). Challenges in collecting data also means challenges in showing if  programs are successful or not. Most municipalities conduct surveys or add data collecting questions to business licenses, but those don’t always provide all the information they really need. 	 Some interviewees commented that they don’t have specific outreach programs for encouraging businesses to participate, instead small and medium size businesses approach the municipality case by case. This is why I argue for the usefulness of  a specific program for small and medium sized businesses and a separate one for larger businesses and industries. This can be achieved by having separate outreach programs intended for the different stakeholders.  4. Main challenges to the program?  	 There is a general lack of  willingness among business owners to take the time and resources to properly dispose of  their waste or reduce waste all together. Additionally, rear loading trucks (in the case of  cities which provide collection service) are less efficient, and front loading trucks are required to service larger collection bins which most businesses need. However, replacing current city trucks with front loading haulers, requires a large investment.  5. Biggest success of  their program? 	 The more feedback methods between the different stakeholders the more useful the program is (in its planning stages as well as implementation). An example of  feedback success is in cities which can help haulers improve efficiencies in exchange for haulers providing data to the regional waste planners.  	 Another lesson learned from our interviews is that outreach and education for businesses is most effective when targeted directly to trouble zones or areas of  high contamination. This is only possible with data, but even so, municipalities might find it best to wait for complaint driven responses in order to provide outreach materials and on site support. Potential Options 	 Since Metro Vancouver doesn’t have permission from the province to have flow control there are a few options that are best suited to be implemented in all member municipalities to help them reach their individual waste diversion targets. There are many paths forward that GEOG 419 !8Metro Vancouver can take, however my stand is clear and supported by both our interview findings and the academic literature. Here are the solutions I am proposing:  	 1) The creation or use of  an online network to connect businesses, haulers, municipalities and processing facilities. A more simple and less costly version would even be adding a forum within the Metro Vancouver website, or creating a Facebook page. Ideally this platform would have many components:  	 It could have a rating system which consumers can use to rate businesses on their waste practices and provide feedback to them. This should be an interactive website or page where each stakeholder can create a profile, raise concerns or suggestions for improvements to the system and also answer questions and concerns brought up by other stakeholders. Picture this as a social platform for the purpose of  data collection and communication. Data collected on this platform can be used by all these stakeholders and especially Metro Vancouver to measure success of  the program, and identify areas of  improvement. This platform would be especially helpful if  created prior to the bylaw so that comparisons can be made and feedback from all stakeholder groups can influence the bylaw as well.  	 At minimum this online platform should contain an easy way to make a profile, create discussion forums, and have a solutions page where anyone can post solutions that can be voted on and also a way to connect between profiles (such as direct messaging).  	  	 2) Create a mandatory recycling bylaw for the ICI sector which can be added to and expanded on as needed to ensure efficiency and that it remains up to date. I recommend that each of  the stakeholders have a minimum waste diversion rate outlined in the bylaw. Additionally, responsibility between the stakeholders should also be outlined in the bylaw. So businesses should be required to divert a minimum percentage of  their waste, haulers should be required to monitor diversion and provide that data to municipalities and processing facilities should be required to monitor incoming waste as well as sharing that information with the cities.  	 3) For a most successful bylaw, small and medium sized businesses should be targeted with the most support in comparison to the rest of  the ICI sector. This is evident from our interviews and academic findings. Zones of  lower income as well as zones with a predominantly smaller business profile should be anticipated to have the most trouble adjusting to the new regulations, so having specific tools for them will help with a smoother transition and help significantly with contamination issues rather than simply waiting for a complaint driven outreach program.  GEOG 419 !9Summary There are some counter arguments that could be argued for, and I will address a couple now.  	 “Bylaws are only effective when you have the financial resources to enforce them” This argument believes that enforcement is very difficult to ensure and also costly to maintain. However, most municipalities that we interviewed have only one staff  member (some have 2) to look through complaints of  non compliance and to communicate directly with those businesses to help them sort their waste properly. This would be even simpler with a centralized communication system between the stakeholders, so that municipalities can provide information and customers can also participate in the monitoring process.  	 “The creation of  an online platform is expensive and might not reach every business” Yes creating online platforms are expensive and will require a hired website designer to coordinate all the different components I am proposing. However I do think this will be the most effective way of  gathering information. This also will allow for engagement between the stakeholders on a unified platform, this is especially important for small to medium sized businesses who might not have the time and human resources to make extensive searches about proper waste disposal in their area. A less costly compromise that I recommend is making this platform part of  the Metro Vancouver website, which is already an established mediator between all the stakeholders, and will be less complicated than creating a whole new website and domain. This way Metro Vancouver can advertise this website through traditional methods of  advertising, to reach a wider audience and to small and medium sized businesses who call in with questions.  	 Lastly, my report was done for a class and therefore has had no third party to verify all this information, however the research has been conducted in the most thorough manner and as well rounded as possible. My report focused on small to medium sized businesses but there can also be research done for larger businesses like factories, industrial sites and other institutions to complete research for the ICI sector. Future research can also be conducted on the side of  what haulers and processing facilities can do to help reduce waste.  	 Thank you for this opportunity and I hope this report will be useful to Metro Vancouver.  GEOG 419 !10Bibliography  Bacot, H., McCoy, B., & Plagman-Galvin, J. (2002).
