Solid Waste Management Master Plan Public Advisory Committee

In May 2019, Council approved the establishment of the 2019 Solid Waste Management Master Plan (SWMMP) Public Advisory Committee to guide the review of the 2014 Solid Waste Management Master Plan. The Steering Committee will assess the progress of the last five years and guide the strategic direction for the next 25 year planning period with new and enhanced waste minimization and diversion initiatives.

The 2019 SWMMP will speak to a number of strategic and program issues and opportunities. To learn about the key topics we will be focusing on, visit the SWMMP webpage.

About the Committee

The City seeks members from different geographic areas, wards and/or housing types to gain perspectives related to specific neighbourhood circumstances and demographics, as these factors influence the delivery of waste management services. Members will be encouraged to represent themselves as individuals and not represent any specific interest or stakeholder group. Sharing of experiences for the benefit of a well-devised Plan will be allowed where it is community, employment or professionally based.

The Committee will meet eight times throughout the course of the study, which is expected to conclude in the fall of 2020, and meetings will usually be held in the evening.
