Waste Management Strategy
|The County of Simcoe has developed a Solid Waste Management Strategy. The Strategy is necessary to provide short and long term disposal options and make further improvements to the County’s waste diversion programs. The Strategy considered existing policies and directions, defined a vision, reviewed the County’s current waste management system, explored a combination of techniques and programs to ensure an integrated waste management system for the future. Strategies will be developed to manage the County’s municipal waste streams in a manner that is appropriate based on local needs and circumstances and considerate of potential economic, environmental, and social implications. The Strategy identified potential solutions, made recommendations and established a planning framework and strategic direction for the foreseeable future. The County of Simcoe retained the services of Stantec Consultants Inc. to assist in development of the Strategy. Stantec is a multidisciplinary firm operating out of more than 130 locations in North America with extensive experience in waste services.|
