Exploring how we'll pay for waste services in the future

We're striving to deliver on our goal of 75% waste diversion from landfill by 2034. One of the actions in our Roadmap to a Circular Economy is to develop a long-term financial plan that will help pay for future waste services and the infrastructure needed to achieve our waste diversion target.

As part of this process, we conducted in-person and online public workshops to better understand the different perspectives of our residents.

These workshops provided an opportunity for residents to share what was important to them as it relates to the waste services within their municipality. Many echoed that cost, convenience, and the environment were all priorities that they valued and that each of these criteria needed to be strongly considered when assessing changes to the waste collection and processing system.

The feedback that was collected from the public was used to assess and narrow down our options even further.

Key themes emerged from the feedback:

We will share the dates for the next round of waste online public workshops once they are finalized.

The world of waste is changing, and we want you to continue sharing your thoughts on what you think is important.
