In this article, the writer explores the factors which explain the notorious NIMBY syndrome phenomenon, especially as it pertains to the general reluctance on the part of Torontonians to welcome new waste management facilities. More than that, the paper looks at the wasteful habits of urban Canadians in general as well as what city planners and waste management authorities can do to minimize local opposition - or, if such opposition is intractable, what they can do to minimize its impact. In the end, the paper asserts that the production of "environment-friendly" goods and an increased public recognition of the utility of recycling can reduce the need for more incinerators and/or landfills.
