Couldn't make it out to an Open House? No Worries! We have created a "Virtual" Open House.

Our second series of Why Waste Open Houses were held on November 29 and 30, 2017 to inform residents about the City's plan to develop long term Residual Waste Disposal and Resource Recovery Strategies and receive feedback. The materials presented about the Resource Recovery Strategy at the Open Houses are provided below along with the opportunity to provide your feedback. This Virtual Open House will remain open until March 31. Results of the feedback received will be available mid-April 2018.

The material presented at the Open Houses about the Residual Waste Disposal Strategy appears on the Residual Waste Disposal Strategy website.

Please review these presentation boards and provide feedback by completing the questions at the bottom of this page.
