Solid Waste Management Plan Review

The RDEK is currently reviewing its Solid Waste Management Plan (SWMP). The goal of this review is to provide an assessment of the current system including how we reduce, reuse and recycle in the RDEK; identify the strengths of the existing system; review cost implications; and, identify opportunities for future improvement.

This page will be your one-stop source for information. We hope you will help be part of the process by participating in quizzes, sharing your ideas and reviewing the information shared. This is important because in the Spring of 2019, we will be bringing the new draft Solid Waste Management Plan out to the public for review and comment.

We currently have an initial survey open (see survey link below) to find out how people are using the system, what their priorities are, and what ideas they may have. This high-level survey will help as we move further into the process and the Committee looks at specifics of the system, the financial impacts (both current and potential), and possible opportunities for the future. There will be a detailed, follow-up survey later in the year and we hope to see your continued engagement.
