Update: November 30, 2018
Timelines extended to implement changes to waste diversion program
Town Council approved a motion at the November 26 meeting that extended the deadline to 2020 for the Industrial, Commercial and Institutional (ICI) sector to phase-in a three-stream waste diversion program.
February 5, 2018
Council has endorsed the 2020 Waste Management Plan, which identified key areas and strategies to achieve an 80% community waste diversion target by 2020. We are working to achieve an 80% reduction in order to align with the province’s goals to divert waste from landfills and extend the life of our regional landfill.
Currently all residents and multi-family dwellings have adopted a three-stream waste diversion program that includes garbage, mixed recycling and organics. The next stage is for the ICI sector to adopt a comprehensive waste diversion program.
The Town will be engaging directly with our local businesses in the near future to provide details surrounding this program.
