May 4,2010 SWMP Draft Public Consultation

Metro Vancouver SWMP process overview:
Draft Integrated Solid Waste and Resource Management Plan Public Consultation 
Metro Vancouver is currently consulting on a new solid waste management plan - the Draft Integrated Solid Waste and Resource Management Plan. Metro Vancouver is responsible for managing the garbage (called solid waste) produced by residents and businesses in the Lower Mainland. A solid waste management plan, evaluated and approved by the region’s Board and the provincial government, directs how our waste is managed.

The current goal is to improve reduction, reuse and recycling efforts so that by 2015, a minimum of 70% of our waste is diverted from disposal (landfill or waste-to-energy). The top priority in managing waste is to reduce our garbage as much as possible through the Zero Waste Challenge.
