Fast Facts

The requirements for publication of notice information can be found under Part 7, Division 8, Section 187 of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA 1999). Resilog tables 1, 2, and 3 describe notifications for proposed exports, imports and transits of hazardous wastes and hazardous recyclable materials received by Environment Canada in the first six months of 2012. Notification status and notified quantities are summarized below.

Notified Quantities, January 1 – June 30, 2012 (1st and 2nd Quarters, 2012)

The quantity notified reflects the estimated maximum quantity of waste that is intended to be shipped. It therefore may not be the same as the actual quantity shipped. Exporters and importers routinely overestimate waste quantities on their notices, given that they must forecast the quantity and the physical and chemical nature of hazardous wastes and hazardous recyclable materials that might be shipped over a period of one year. Actual quantities of waste in movement are tracked through movement documents and are entered in a database.

How to Read Resilog

Waste Groups

1. Battery Wastes:
Waste whole or crushed batteries, including acid batteries.
2. Biomedical Wastes:
As defined in the CCME Guidelines for the Management of Biomedical Wastes in Canada, plus infectious wastes (TDGR class 6.2 and Schedule 3 of EIHWHRMR).
3. Corrosive Liquids:
Waste acidic or basic liquids and solutions (TDGR class 8).
4. Corrosive Solids:
Waste acids and bases in solid form (TDGR class 8).
5. Environmental Hazards:
Liquid and solid wastes that could pose a danger to the environment.
6. Flammable Liquids:
Waste liquids that are ignitable (TDGR class 3).
7. Flammable Solids:
Waste ignitable, pyrophoric or water reactive solids (TDGR class 4).
8. Gases:
Waste aerosols, compressed and liquefied gases (TDGR class 2).
9. Halogenated Organic Wastes:
Waste halogenated organic solvents, liquids and solids.
10. Inorganic Wastes:
Waste inorganic substances and solutions.
11. Leachable Toxic Wastes:
Wastes that come within Schedule 6 of the EIHWHRMR.
12. Metal and Mineral Wastes:
Metal/mineral bearing wastes, metal treatment and processing wastes.
13. Non-halogenated Organic Wastes:
Waste non-halogenated organic solvents, liquids and solids.
14. Oils/Fuels:
Waste gasoline, diesel, petroleum processing wastes, used lubricating oils and filters and anti-knock mixtures.
15. Oxidizers:
Oxidizing wastes and organic peroxide wastes (TDGR class 5).
16. Paint-related Wastes:
Waste paints, resins, lacquers, inks, paint thinners and adhesives.
17. Pesticide Wastes:
Waste biocides and wastes contaminated with pesticides.
18. Toxic Liquids:
Waste liquids and solutions that are toxic/poisonous (TDGR class 6.1).
19. Toxic Solids:
Wastes in a solid form that are toxic/poisonous (TDGR class 6.1).
20. Polychlorinated Biphenyls:
Wastes that contain more than 50mg/kg of PCBs.


In the tables, the waste groups are listed across the top row by number. The names of Canadian companies that notified Environment Canada of intended imports and exports (notifiers) are entered alphabetically in the left column. Although a Canadian company may have submitted many notices for the period covered by this Resilog edition, its name appears only once in each table. Therefore, each notifier may have more than one permit per waste group.

For exports and imports, a two-letter code representing the name of the country of origin (imports) or destination (exports) is used. If a Canadian company has provided multiple notices in which the countries of origin or destination differ, the countries of origin (imports) or destination (exports) are identified with a one-letter code.

For transits, the two-letter code represents the name of the country of origin and destination. If the countries of origin and destination are different, then a one-letter code is used.

The legend of country codes is provided at the bottom of each table.
