Waste management affects everyone in Kawartha Lakes. From residents and visitors, businesses and contractors, everyone within the municipality is a stakeholder.

This year, the City's “Making Waste Matter: Integrated Waste Management Strategy” will be going through a strategic update, taking a close look at the current programs and initiatives in place and ensuring the City is on track to meet sustainable goals. 

Kawartha Lakes will be hosting a public meeting on June 26 to provide an opportunity for an open discussion on waste management for the municipality. The meeting will take place from 6pm to 8pm in the Victoria room at City Hall. They will walk through the current strategy and then open the floor to feedback and engagement on updating or continuing current programs in place. 

 The Waste Management Advisory Committee, Lindsay Ops Landfill Public Review Committee and Fenelon Landfill Public Review Committee, along with Kawartha Lakes staff, have already begun work on the strategy update through regular meetings as well as completing brainstorming activities to come up with new goals and ideas to explore further.

The municipality has accomplished a lot since the Strategy was first implemented in 2015 and officials would like to acknowledge that these goals could not have been achieved without the public’s support and participation. Public feedback is critical to the success of the new Strategy update.

Can’t make the meeting on June 26? Take a short online survey to provide the opportunity for feedback and commentary surrounding the updated Strategy. The online survey will be available on the City's website until July 15, 2019.
