Abstract

Canada is in a garbage crisis. The amount of waste needing disposal increases each year despite attempts to such as the 3Rs (reduce, reuse, recycle) to alleviate it. This means that facilities need to be sited to handle these wastes. Waste facilities are commonly sited using the "traditional process". The failure of this process to site waste facilities effectively has resulted in the call for an alternative process. This failure is due in part to what has been referred to as NIMBYism. The alternative process developed to overcome some of the failures of the traditional process is the "volunteer process". The evaluation of this volunteer process will be the focus of this thesis. A case study analysis of volunteer siting cases from across Canada will be undertaken to determine if this process is a viable alternative to the traditional process.Dept. of Geography.
