Waste Management Master Plan

Special Projects / Brighton Landfill EA / Brighton Landfill Liaison Committee / Waste Management Master Plan

 

In 2011, Northumberland County began creating a Long-Term Waste Management Master Plan. This plan, now completed, is a guide that will help us better manage our local environment by keeping unnecessary waste out of our landfills – this is known as ‘diversion’.

Currently, the County’s waste diversion rate sits at 40%. By implementing the Long-Term Plan, we expect to achieve approximately 56% diversion by 2019 – keeping 15,605 tonnes of waste from our landfills, annually. The County will work with the community towards achieving the ultimate goal of up to 75% waste diversion on an annual basis.

Because of the significant social and economic impacts that long-term waste management solution(s) could have on the residents and businesses of the County, public input was a cornerstone of the plan development process:

  • Two sets of Open Houses were held throughout the County (Nov/Dec 2012; June 2013)
  • Two questionnaires were released, seeking public input (paper-based and online formats)
  • Two members of the general public sit on the 16-member County Advisory Committee (Notices and Minutes of these meetings, as well as information presented, is provided below)
