As cities across the globe explore ways to reduce waste and finding more innovative solutions, Peel Region is also exploring options of how best to provide services that support the community. They want residents to provide input as they make policy decisions about waste services.
Of particular interest is the creation of a possible user fee system which is being used in North America and Europe. The idea is to find solutions to an issue that is important to all Canadians, especially millennials who support and embrace all measures to save the planet, regardless of the cost. The Region wants to reduce the amount of waste generated and help divert 75 per cent of items from landfill by 2034.
