The time has come for us to think about waste.
Our population is projected to grow to 195,000 by 2027, an increase of 13 per cent. The amount of waste we generate will similarly increase and managing that requires some thinking!
Our current City of Whitehorse Waste Management Plan (2011), which has guided how waste in Whitehorse is managed, is due to expire this year. We’re starting to work on a new Waste Management Strategy. It will look to address changes in the waste industry, litter and dumped rubbish on our streets, community education and our role in advocating for better ways to manage waste. We are looking at every aspect of the waste services we provide to residents, ratepayers and visitors.
