The City of Ottawa is set to undertake the first major update of its Integrated Solid Waste Master Plan since 2003. The new Master Plan will set the strategic direction for how waste is managed in Ottawa over the next 30 years.
The Plan will incorporate a variety of waste management strategies and policies, including approaches to increase both curbside and multi-residential waste diversion, waste prevention and reuse strategies, regulatory strategies, resource recovery strategies and residual management strategies.
The Plan will consider the current regional, national and global waste contexts. This includes the shift to a circular economy, the move toward individual producer responsibility for products and packaging and the issue of single-use plastics.
