Regional District Solid Waste Management Plan

POSTED: March 23, 2017

The District of Stewart is a member of the Regional District Solid Waste Management Plan. This Plan is a new approach that will help make waste management safer and more cost efficient by sharing resources. All communities will contribute to the plan based on their population. This means that Stewart’s taxpayers will contribute approximately 7% of the cost.

You will be receiving an informational flyer in your mailbox that provides more information. We encourage you to read the flyer and be informed about the changes that will be taking place with the closure of our landfill and the construction of a transfer station.

Community meetings will be arranged in the coming months so that you can provide your input into this process.

If you have questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me.
