With financial support from Saskatchewan’s Ministry of Environment, CleanFARMS been involved in a number agricultural waste projects in the province. This work includes waste characterization studies, stakeholder consultations and the evaluation of processing and collection options.

 

In 2013, the Ministry of Environment asked CleanFARMS to work with a multi-stakeholder committee, named the Saskatchewan Agricultural Stewardship Council (SASC), to examine the feasibility of an extended producer responsibility program to manage different types of agricultural wastes.
