BACKGROUND INFORMATION ON SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT PLAN

Public consultation

The consultation process included 14 public open houses and presentations held throughout the region to provide everyone with an opportunity to learn more about solid waste management and to provide input on options for future programs and services. Approximately 700 feedback forms were completed at the open houses or online. As well, a statistically-representative telephone survey was conducted. The large majority of feedback received through the open houses and online surveys is consistent with the results of the phone survey, which is considered to be statistically accurate within ±4.0%, 19 times out of 20. This information will be used to provide direction on the types of services that will help us reduce all of our waste and better manage the leftover garbage.
