 Public Works
First Quarter Waste Management Tonnage Report
 

The Commissioner of Public Works presented a report to Regional Council on the waste tonnages in the Region of Peel for the period January to March, 2003.

According to the report, the Region's overall garbage tonnage collected from January to March 2003 was down by 348 tonnes, compared to the same period in 2002. In addition, there has been an increase in the use of Blue and Grey recycling boxes by more than 1,362 tonnes or over 7% in the first quarter of 2003. These changes in the statistics are attributed to the Three Bag Standard Program the Region has been promoting, along with the overall Waste Management communication strategy on recycling.

The Three Bag Standard Program continues to have the positive effect of reducing the amount of garbage collected and increasing recycling tonnages collected.

The Smog Response Strategy was developed by a committee of representatives of all Regional departments reporting to the Regional Air Quality Working Group. The strategy will target a reduction in ground-level ozone and fine particulate matter.

The report includes proposed initiatives that will be divided into short and long term actions with emphasis on the long term initiatives to reduce smog and air pollution on a year-round basis. The short term initiatives will be implemented during smog watches and smog advisories.

Communication strategies will also be in place to ensure that Regional staff and the public will be made aware of the issues and actions on how smog affects everyone's quality of life.
