Solid Waste Management Strategy

​The Solid Waste Management Strategy (Strategy)​, approved by County Council in 2010, provides a framework for short- and long-term diversion and waste disposal programs for the next 20 years. As recommended, annual reports are completed, with updates recommended to be undertaken at five year intervals. The first scheduled 5-year update commenced in 2015 – with County Council approving final recommendations and initiatives on September 13, 2016.

The County is in the initial stages of developing the next 5-year update and will be seeking input from its residents, partners and other key stakeholders. There will be multiple opportunities for participation in the process with public engagement sessions expected to occur later this spring. A list of upcoming engagement events and a survey link will be provided in the near future.
