  • Province Releases Terms of Reference for Waste Management Review

    The provincial government has released the Terms of Reference for the Provincial Solid Waste Management Strategy Review.

    A former clerk of the Executive Council, Ann Marie Hann, is leading the review into the fees charged to cabin and summer home owners for waste management.

    The minister of Municipal Affairs and Environment, Graham Letto, earlier this month ordered the Eastern Waste Management Board to halt waste collection on unserviced roads outside municipalities.

    Seasonal property owners have long questioned the way in which waste collection fees have been administered and charged.

    Issues to be examined by the review include waste diversion, a regional approach to waste management, modern standards and technology and public education.
