Overview

Graduate Certificate in Sustainable Waste Management

In this unique, post-graduate program you will learn to develop and implement innovative waste management plans and strategies based on new and emerging technologies and concepts.

Increasing waste volumes, increasing severity of impact and costs of waste management and the challenge of managing waste in developing countries and emerging markets make a dramatic shift in waste management practices. 

Countries around the globe are moving towards a circular economy and waste has to be dealt with in new, innovative ways rather than simply sending it to landfill. 

The new Waste-Free Ontario Act makes producers responsible for their waste management. 

Failure to take action in managing waste has economic, environmental, social as well as health and safety implications.

The Sustainable Waste Management program is the only college program in Ontario that is focused on building advanced knowledge and skills in sustainable waste management.

  • You will be well-versed in the relevant legislation and existing as well as emerging technologies, with the skills to effect changes in how business and industry manage their waste and how to move them beyond the three R’s of waste management.
  • The program focuses on solid waste management but does include courses that address hazardous waste management.

WORK EXPERIENCE

Course work includes projects with community and industry partners. Five-week field placement at Fleming College will enable you to network with those already in the industry and explore your interests within the field.
