Waste and Diversion Advisory Committee

City Council approved a comprehensive waste management plan in October 2011 designed to keep more than half of our garbage out of the landfill by giving Winnipeg residents more ways to reduce, reuse and recycle.

More than 2,500 Winnipeggers participated in nine months of city-wide public consultations to help develop Winnipeg’s new recycling and garbage services.

As part of that process, it was determined a Waste and Diversion Advisory Committee comprised of knowledgeable, environmentally conscious volunteer citizens would provide advice and recommendations for the completion, implementation, and continual improvement of the Garbage and Recycling Master Plan.

The Committee was chosen to ensure a variety of perspectives were represented, including a diversity of ages and gender, urban and suburban residents, homeowners and renters, families with and without children, and residents living in single-family and multi-family dwellings.
