The Regional Municipality of York, in partnership with our local municipal partners, is developing, the SM4RT Living Plan, also known as the Integrated Waste Management Master Plan.
SM4RT Living will create a road map to help guide waste management in York Region for the next 40 years. This plan will focus on shifting minds, beliefs and values to drive waste prevention and reuse, while maximizing recycling, composting, and energy recovery. It will ultimately highlight the need for lifestyle changes and for more informed decisions around the way we buy materials and generate waste. This is a critical component of the goal to create a more sustainable community.
Through public and stakeholder engagement, this plan will evolve, be influenced and ultimately, guided by the community. Please join us in developing SM4RT LIVING: York Region’s Integrated Waste Management Master Plan.
