The Waste Analysis Sampling, Testing and Evaluation (WASTE) Program is a multi-year, multi-disciplinary program designed to elicit the source and fate of environmentally significant trace materials as a solid waste progresses through management processes. As part of the WASTE Program's first major field effort, the compositional, chemical and leaching characteristics of the stack emissions from the Burnaby Municipal Waste Incinerator Facility were examined. Waste components that have both a significant quantity of an element and vary with a residue stream or stack emission are identified as potentially significant trace element sources by this exploratory data analysis.
