NEIA to submit recommendations to province in its review of NL’s solid waste management strategy; seeking member input

On January 9, 2019, the provincial government announced a comprehensive review of the Newfoundland and Labrador’s solid waste management strategy.

This review will assess the progress of the strategy since it was announced 16 years ago in 2002, the associated policy and legislative framework, and the role and mandate of the organizations involved in its implementation.

This work will help address a number of issues raised by residents and organizations, including: fees for waste management services; the cost of interregional transportation of waste and recycling; waste management implementation in Labrador; environmental standards; and associated legislation. The implementation of the strategy is led by a partnership of government departments, the Multi-Materials Stewardship Board, regional service boards and committees, and municipalities, each with a specific role. Each entity’s mandate and its role in the strategy will be considered during the review.

NEIA will be preparing a series of recommendations to be considered in this review on behalf of its membership, and is reaching out to its contacts to collect ideas and opinions. If you would like to contribute to NEIA’s submission, please contact Kieran Hanley at kieran@neia.org.
