Waste Management Strategic Plan
All Niagara Region projects

About the project

Niagara Region is developing a Waste Management Strategic Plan. This plan will provide a framework and direction for waste management over the next 25 years. Research, reports and consultations will inform the plan and be a guide for Niagara Region staff and Regional Council.

We invite interested parties to engage in the development of the plan. Join our interactive open houses and surveys throughout the year and pitch in your ideas for the future of Niagara Region's waste programs and systems.
