The City of Greater Sudbury is seeking the public’s feedback on how they should manage waste for the next 10 years.

Residents’ insights will help fuel the development of an updated Sustainable Waste Strategy the city plans on finalizing by mid 2024.

The updated strategy’s goal is to “improve waste management programs and services to make the city more sustainable,” the city noted in a media release.

“This is important to help optimize landfill space, achieve climate change goals, divert and reduce waste, improve convenience and operate cost effectively.”

The city is currently in the effort’s second phase, which consists of establishing guiding principles and vision for the future state. 

Key questions in the second phase include: 

  • How will the city manage and divert waste in the future?
  • What vision and guiding principles should be adopted?
  • How should the waste management system be measured to track performance? 
  • How would costs be impacted?

Input can be submitted on the city’s Over to You page online, which can be found by clicking here.

Input, including a public survey, can be submitted before June 6. Completing the survey takes approximately 10 minutes.
