Industrial Waste/Pollutant Transfer Activity in North America

Have you ever wondered where #IndustrialWaste goes?

Based on the #RightToKnow principle, @Commission enhances transparency and public access to data about the transfer of industrial pollutants to off-site locations (that is to recycling, landfills, etc.)

North American industries generate pollutants that must be managed to protect human health and the environment.

Each year, facilities report the amounts of substances they release to air, water, or land, send to disposal, or transfer for recycling or other management.

The CEC integrates and analyze data reported to the Canadian, Mexican and US PRTRs (Pollutant Releases Transfers Registers) and make them available to the public through Taking Stock Online and the Taking Stock report series.
