Provincial waste reduction and management strategy

Too Good to Waste is Alberta’s provincial strategy for waste reduction and management.


The Too Good to Waste strategy identifies opportunities, outcomes and strategies to help the province move forward with innovative waste management programs.

Waste management outcomes

Three main outcomes are identified within the strategy:

  1. Albertans take responsibility for resource conservation and waste minimization.
  2. Waste management systems are integrated to provide the capacity for processing and/or recovery of materials that would otherwise be disposed of as wastes.
  3. Facilities and practices to manage secondary materials and wastes are protective of the environment and human health.

These outcomes are supported by a number of strategies and actions.
