KAWARTHA LAKES: This year, our “Making Waste Matter: Integrated Waste Management Strategy” will be going through a strategic update, taking a close look at the current programs and initiatives in place and ensuring we’re on track to meet our sustainable goals.
Waste management affects everyone in Kawartha Lakes. From residents and visitors, businesses and contractors, everyone within the municipality is a stakeholder.
Kawartha Lakes will be hosting a public meeting on June 26 to provide an opportunity for an open discussion on waste management for our municipality. The meeting will take place from 6pm to 8pm in the Victoria room at City Hall, where we will walk through the current strategy and then open the floor to feedback and engagement on updating or continuing current programs in place. The Waste Management Advisory Committee, Lindsay Ops Landfill Public Review Committee and Fenelon Landfill Public Review Committee, along with Kawartha Lakes staff, have already begun work on the strategy update through regular meetings as well as completing brainstorming activities to come up with new goals and ideas to explore further.
The municipality has accomplished a lot since the Strategy was first implemented in 2015 and we’d like to acknowledge that we could not have achieved any of these goals without the public’s support and participation. Public feedback is critical to the success of the new Strategy update.
Can’t make the meeting on June 26? Take a short online survey to provide the opportunity for feedback and commentary surrounding the updated Strategy. The online survey will be available on our website until July 15, 2019.
