Waste Management

Waste Management Project

At the September 5, 2019 meeting the Local Trust Committee resolved to not proceed any further with this project.  Operators and/or landowners can apply for temporary use permits or rezoning for specific locations.

This project was initiated in 2015 to identify appropriate land to be zoned for solid waste transfer facilities. Bylaws were developed after extensive community engagement and through an evaluation of best practices, the development of appropriate criteria, and inventorying existing industrial land and current sites used for waste and resource transfer stations.
