Darryl Drohomerski, Manager of Solid Waste Services with the City of Winnipeg introduces the process for developing Winnipeg’s new Garbage Master Plan.
Hello, I’m Darryl Drohomerski, Manager of Solid Waste Services with the City of Winnipeg.
I am here to talk about something we all do every day – throw out garbage.
We throw out more than 400,000 tonnes of garbage a year into Brady Landfill. Did you know that we can divert about 90% of this waste by recycling and composting?
Currently, Winnipeg only diverts 17% of our residential waste from the landfill. We need a long-term plan to increase that percentage much higher —not just for residential, but for businesses and institutions too.
Through SpeakUpWinnipeg, we want to have a conversation with Winnipeggers about all aspects of garbage, recycling and composting for our city. Some of the biggest questions we need to work together to answer are:
- How can we increase our waste diversion to 50% and higher?
- What should the future of the Brady Road Landfill look like? and
- How can we provide fair and equitable service across the entire city?
Please join us as we work towards the vision of a sustainable Winnipeg through our garbage service.
