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. These initiatives are set to be brought forward over the next 5-year planning period. Development of recommendations related to improving diversion at County waste management facilities and curbside service enhancements has begun.
