Company chosen to review solid-waste management service model


The Department of Environment and Local Government has selected Dillon Consulting to conduct a comprehensive review of its 30-year-old solid-waste management service model.

A release says three engineering firms bid on the terms of reference for the review in August.

“Reducing waste through recycling and other programs is our goal,” said Environment and Local Government Minister Jeff Carr. “It is important to determine what is working well and what could be improved in our current service model so that we can better adapt to future solid-waste management programs and strategies.”

The review is expected to take 6 months to complete and has received $125,000 in funding from the Environmental Trust Fund

There are 12 Regional Service Commissions that oversee the delivery of the service model through the operation of six sanitary landfills and other waste management initiatives.
