The Solid Waste Management Bylaw enables us to carry out functions in the interests of public health by ensuring that refuse is collected and disposed of efficiently. 

It is designed to cover collection requirements, recycling, the ownership of the solid waste stream and the storage, separation, transfer and management of solid waste. It covers all household and trade refuse and contains a schedule which lists 'special waste' such as toxic and chemical waste, offal and odorous waste.

The bylaw was reviewed and updated in 2013 after consultation with the public. To view the revised document, follow the link below.
