XCG Knows… Circular Innovation Council 3RCertified Waste Audit

The Circular Innovation Council (formerly the Recycling Council of Ontario) 3RCertified Waste Audits are based on a Standard Waste Audit Method and supports professional development in several key areas such as accurate and standardized methods of measuring and reporting performance, auditing principles, sampling methods, benchmarking and data analysis, best practices, and compliance with regulation.

XCG staff have completed the Circular Innovation Council's 3R training and are qualified to complete a waste audit in accordance with Ontario’s regulatory requirements and The Circular Innovation Council’s Standard Waste Audit Method. The Circular Innovation Council’s Standard Waste Audit Method is a pre-requisite for Ontario’s 3RCertified program and is also acceptable under the BOMA BEST environmental assessment certification program.

XCG can provide waste audit services for clients to stay compliant with ministry regulatory requirements and help them achieve their waste diversion goals.
