Waste By-Law Review
The Municipality is updating its Waste By-Law to make it more responsive to its residents and neighbourhoods.
It has been 11 years since the Municipality’s Collection, Storage and Disposal of Waste By-Law (No. 8) has been reviewed and our residential and commercial landscape has evolved significantly since then. For this reason, the Municipality is updating its Waste By-Law to make it more responsive to our residents and businesses.
By-Law reviews are complex, technical and time-consuming, requiring a high level of attention to detail and a thorough understanding of:
- the community’s needs;
- council’s priorities;
- applicable technologies and trends;
- potential gaps in the existing by-law;
- new or amended legislation; and
- resource implications of implementation.
The Waste By-Law Review Project will review and update the By-Law, considering specifically the:
- frequency of collection
- disposal limits
- use of black bags
- collection of commercial waste
- collection of industry specific waste (i.e. seafood, tourism, RV)
- offering of special collections (i.e. metal, wood, Christmas tree, spring/fall, bulky items)
- fines for discouraging improper separation and disposal
The review process will be separated in six phases that include a total of 36 key steps. The phases are:
- Research and Analysis
- Development of New By-Law and Assosciated Report
- Committee and Council
