City of Ottawa Second Solid Waste Master Plan – Phase 1: Where We Are

City of Ottawa Second Solid Waste Master Plan - Phase 1: Where We Are

(Theme 7 – Waste)

Organization: City of Ottawa

Project Start Date: 2022

Objective:

The new 30-year master plan would provide the overall framework, direction and goals for solid waste management, diversion and reduction policy over the short, medium and long term. It would look at how the City collects and processes waste, and how we could increase waste diversion rates. Refocussing our approach to waste management will help keep Ottawa clean and livable over the long-term and help extend the life of the Trail Road Landfill, which is currently expected to reach capacity in 2042.

Following extensive, inclusive and ongoing public engagement and consultation, the master plan would come to the Committee for consideration by the end of 2021, along with the initial five-year implementation plan. Staff would provide updates and new implementation plans every five years, making the master plan adaptable as new technologies, legislation, policies, information and ideas emerge.

Phase 1 Report is completed (April, 2020)
