Waste, Resources and Materials Management

Municipal Guide Web Return to Home.png

Incorporating sustainability into waste management requires municipalities to shift the focus from waste disposal to efficiently using resources and materials. Promoting highest value resource and material use at the residential and municipal levels reduces waste and saves money. Developing an effective Resource, Waste and Material Management Plan (formally known as Solid Waste Management Plan) integrates waste reduction, repurposing, reusing, recycling, and diversion which can  reduce investment, operation and maintenance costs, conserve resources, materials and energy and improve resident health and wellbeing.
