Abstract: 

Windy Pine: A Greener Future is a study of the current waste management practices that exist at Windy Pine and how new alternatives can be utilized that will create an up to date green waste management plan. This report analyzes recycling, composting, composting toilets, and septic tank systems. By studying this wide range of options, we were able to produce suggestions that will assist Windy Pine in determining the best suited green waste diversion plan. Part of the study involves a series of structured interviews with local residents in the Haliburton area, Waste Management officials, and Parks Canada in order to further our project in developing a sustainable plan for the property.
