Integrated Waste Management Master Plan

The SM4RT Living Plan (Integrated Waste Management Master Plan) identifies more than 60 initiatives that set the stage for waste management in York Region over the next 25 to 40 years. Starting with 32 of these initiatives within the next five years (2014-2018), the focus will be on the 4 Rs: reduce, reuse, recycle and recover; working toward zero waste.

Phase 1

Review current waste systems, policies, programs and innovative global practices

Phase 2 

Identify gaps in current standards, resident feedback and establish long-term vision

Phase 3

Integrate lessons learned and create strategies focusing on sustainability and the future

What's in it for You? 

A more sustainable future for your family. Here's what we want you to accomplish by 2031:

  • 166,000 estimated tonnes of waste reduced in the first 18 years of the plan
  • 62,000 estimated tonnes of waste reused in the first 18 years of the plan
