A quorum of voting members was not present for the duration of the meeting and in accordance with Section III-4(e) of Procedural By-law 54-1999, the Committee received information from staff on the following agenda items.

      1. Declarations of Conflicts of Interest

      2. Approval of Agenda

      3. Delegations

      4. Waste Management Updates
      1. Review of Issues to be Addressed at the Long Term Waste Resource Management Strategy (LTWRMS) Workshop (Oral)

Scott Stewart, Director of Waste Management, gave a preliminary overview of a draft agenda for the workshop for Members of Council being proposed for January 16th, including Introduction and Objective of Workshop; Update of Waste Tonnages and Waste Streams Managed; Long Term Waste Resource Management Strategy; and Future Direction and Plans. He suggested that the workshop be interactive.

Mitch Zamojc, Commissioner of Public Works, raised the matter of whether the workshop would run for a whole day or half-day, and whether it would be held in conjunction with the full Council Workshop proposed for January 2001. It was agreed that the LTWRMS Workshop should be held on a separate day. Commencement time and duration of workshop was to be determined, and 9:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. was suggested as a possibility.

Scott Stewart introduced Betty Muise, Senior Training Consultant from EnvirosRIS, who would be assisting in the facilitation of the workshop.

Members discussed what the focus of the day should be. It was clarified that the purpose of the workshop would be to provide information on: i) the various waste programs for 2001; ii) the decisions that would need to be made in 2001; and iii) the longer term (2001-2003) waste issues. Topics suggested for discussion at the workshop included:

It was also suggested that the workshop be an annual event to provide an update for Councillors on waste management issues.

Councillor Saito requested staff to confirm how many Councillors had indicated an interest in attending the workshop to date. She also emphasized the importance of having as many Councillors attend the workshop as possible so that they have the opportunity to be fully informed when it is time to make decisions at Council.

A draft questionnaire to survey subcommittee Members’ views on waste issues and topics was distributed for discussion purposes. It was suggested that it would be preferable to solicit feedback from all Members of Council at the December 14, 2000 Council meeting or by phone. Councillor Morrison would advise Members on December 14th that Public Works staff would be contacting them in this regard.

      1. Use of Biodegradable Bags for Yard Waste (Oral)

Deferred from the October 10, 2000 Waste Management Subcommittee Meeting – Staff to Present a Draft Report for Discussion

Scott Stewart outlined the draft report titled "Banning Plastic Bags from the Curbside Collection of Leaf and Yard Waste", as distributed at the meeting. This initiative promoted the use of paper bags and rigid, open-top containers for leaf and yard waste, while discontinuing the use of clear plastic bags in an effort to eliminate plastic residues that contaminate compost.

Scott Stewart identified that the supply of paper bags was an issue. In order for the initiative to succeed, grocery and retail stores must be able to provide the bags. Grocery stores were willing to stock paper bags if Regional Council was to pass a resolution banning plastic bags for leaf and yard collection. It was suggested that approval by Regional Council be conditional upon retailers providing the paper bags.

The cost of the paper bags was also addressed. Paper bags cost more than plastic bags, and Scott Stewart stated that he would clearly identify the cost difference for residents in the report.

Councillor Saito stated that her residents would be impacted by the increased cost, and the inconvenience of another container change. She noted that she was still receiving complaints from residents about the grey/blue box program changes and feels that another change at this time would not be desirable. Staff felt that the time to implement such an initiative would be now. Residents want to do more to divert garbage, especially after the Toronto/Kirkland Lake garbage deliberations.

It was noted that the City of Toronto was planning to implement a ban on plastic bags in the Spring of 2001 and that Peel could implement their initiative around the same time and benefit from the advertising of Toronto’s campaign.

      1. Additional Items


      2. Election of Chair and Vice-Chair Councillor Morrison raised the issue of electing a Chair and Vice-Chair for the Waste Management Subcommittee, and indicated that this election would take place at the first Committee meeting of the new term.


      3. Long-term Waste Solutions in Caledon

Councillor Morrison, on behalf of Councillor Sinclair, inquired as to what long-term solutions to waste in Caledon are being considered in view of the closure of the Britannia Sanitary Landfill Site. Mitch Zamojc responded that remediation and closure are two issues that need to be addressed. Mining would not be an option as it is believed that the Ministry would not allow mining to increase capacity, but only to resolve a problem.

Moved by Councillor Sinclair,
Seconded by Councillor Morrison;

That the Commissioner of Public Works provide a comprehensive report on the Caledon Landfill Site addressing the issues of remediation and leachate from the landfill site leaking into the nearby river;

And further, that the Commissioner of Public Works report back to the next Waste Management Subcommittee meeting with its findings.

Carried 2001-27

6. Next Meeting

Members present concurred that the LTWRMS Workshop would take place on January 16, 2001, and that all Members of Council be notified as soon as possible. Details of the time and location were still to be determined.
