Towards Zero Waste Management Plan 2019-2023

The 10-year plan is based on the waste management hierarchy where avoidance is the most preferable option and disposal to landfill the least preferable. The hierarchy provides a pathway to achieving zero waste. The plan has four strategic directions.

  1. Avoid waste generation.
  2. Build, support and strengthen a community culture that is striving to be zero waste.
  3. Deliver environmentally responsible and cost-effective recycling and waste services.
  4. Advocate to other levels of government to avoid waste, reduce waste to landfill and increase recycling.
