Solid Waste Management Plan

August 17, 2020

The NCRD is currently in the planning stages of updating the regions Solid Waste Management Plan (SWMP). Updating the SWMP was identified as a high priority by the Board of Directors under the Environment and Climate Change portion of the 2019-2022 NCRD Strategic Plan. The current SWMP was adopted for the region in 1996, and since then the region and its solid waste needs have changed, thus the need to have an updated SWMP that reflects this.

The objectives of updating the SWMP are to:

  • Improve operational and financial efficiencies of the NCRD waste management system;

  • Assist users to improve their participation in waste segregation and diversion programs;

  • Continue monitoring new and upgraded solid waste management facilities and services;

  • Maintain and improve relationships with larger waste generators;

  • Improve compliance with existing product stewardship programs; and

  • Expand service delivery to rural communities.
