Durham Region: Have your say on the future of waste management in Durham

Whitby, Ontario – Durham Region residents are invited to offer their ideas and input on how Durham Region manages its household waste.

Why: The Region’s five Rs approach (rethink, reduce, reuse, recycle, recover), allows for all waste diversion methods to be utilized. Recovery, the final method of the five Rs used by the Region, maximizes waste diversion by using garbage to capture energy from waste. The Region is looking at its waste management programs and how to best use the recycling and disposal systems. Residents are invited to complete a brief online survey, which will help the Region understand what residents think is most important for managing the waste we create. The survey should take less than five minutes to complete.

Where: To complete the Waste Management Survey, visit durham.ca/WasteSurvey.

When: The survey will be open until December 15.

Note: To request a paper copy of the survey, call 1-800-667-5671.
