Working Together to Rethink Waste

The CRD is developing a new management plan to reduce how much material is sent to Hartland Landfill and guide how the region's solid waste is managed in a safe, secure and sustainable way now and in the future.

Following a second phase of public engagement in winter 2020, CRD staff are bringing the final draft Solid Waste Management Plan and next steps for implementation to the Solid Waste Advisory Committee, Environmental Services Committee and Board this spring.

The final draft Plan includes proposed strategies and actions for reducing and managing all streams of solid waste—including recyclables, compostable material and garbage—with an eye to extending the life of Hartland Landfill to 2100 and beyond.

Thank You for Your Feedback

Public engagement is a key part of developing the region's solid waste management plan.

An extensive first phase of consultation on the proposed targets, strategies and actions for the Plan was carried out in late 2019.  This first phase of input informed the creation of the draft Plan that was issued for public review and comment in November 2020.

The final draft Plan includes input from electoral areas and municipalities, First Nations communities, residents and neighboring regional districts.

Although the formal period for public feedback on this plan has now closed, residents are welcome to submit additional comments about the draft plan to the CRD Board by email.

This multi-phased public engagement process is aligned with the Province's solid waste management planning requirements under the Environmental Management Act.
