City seeks community feedback on waste management options

The City of Guelph is seeking feedback and insight from the community as part of its Solid Waste Management Master Plan (SWMMP) Review.
After extensive community consultation through an open house, focus group workshops, surveys, and on-going input from the Public Steering Committee, the review team has identified potential waste reduction and diversion options that will build on Guelph’s success and take current and future needs into consideration.
Residents are invited to learn more about these options and to share their feedback at the second SWMMP Review open house.
