More than 2,500 Winnipeggers participated in nine months of city-wide public consultations to help develop a new innovative garbage and recycling master plan that provides uniform affordable services city-wide and offers citizens numerous environmental programs so Winnipeg can increase diverted waste by 50% or more.
The plan will be considered at the Standing Policy Committee on Infrastructure Renewal and Public Works meeting on Monday, October 3, 2011.
Community Depots are a place where residents can drop off material that can be recycled or reused instead of putting it in the garbage. They have the potential to reduce the amount of garbage we throw out by 3% each and are found in many other Canadian cities. Are Community Depots right for Winnipeg?
The City of Winnipeg, the Province of Manitoba, private industry, and stewardship organizations partner to provide many garbage and recycling services, programs and policies. What more can we do to work together towards improving garbage and recycling services in Winnipeg?
