Mission Statement

"To protect human health and the environment and maximize value of service by effectively managing the region's solid waste in an environmentally, socially and economically responsible manner."

The Environmental Management Act mandates regional districts to develop plans for the management of municipal solid waste and recyclable materials.

Local governments have developed management strategies that reduce their disposed amount of municipal solid waste.

The waste management hierarchy is useful when looking at opportunities to improve solid waste management systems.

Landfills
Disposal of materials to a landfill is the least preferred management option in the waste management hierarchy after reduce, reuse, recycle and recovery options have been exhausted.
