Working Together to Rethink Waste

The CRD is developing a new Solid Waste Management Plan—the plan that guides how the region will manage solid waste in the coming years, including recyclables, compostable material and garbage from homes, businesses and institutions, as well as construction and demolition sites. Managing solid waste is a responsibility shared by all of us.

There have been significant changes to the way in which we think about and manage waste. A new plan will ensure we continue to manage solid waste in the best way possible. This plan is looking at ways to extend the life of the Hartland Landfill beyond 2100, by significantly reducing waste and reusing/recycling materials and considering future landfill design options. The aim is to reduce our waste from 380 kg per capita (2018 levels) to 250 kg per capita by 2030 – a reduction of more than a third.

Proposed Goals and Strategies

There are four proposed goals and 15 strategies, each with a series of actions, to help meet the proposed waste reduction target. These are described in more detail in the information sheets under New Plan Resources.
