The phase 1 events were held in central locations across HRM, including Dartmouth, Bedford, Halifax and Porters Lake. These events were focused on sharing information and gathering feedback from the community members in attendance.

The content presented in the public sessions included an educational presentation by HRM on the waste management system and options under consideration, and a presentation by the CMC articulating the key concerns of the host communities of the Otter Lake landfill. Discussions were then hosted in a world café format, and framed by the following questions:

  1. “What do you appreciate most about the way we handle our trash in HRM?”
  2. “What is most important to you as we evolve our waste system?”
  3. “What values and principles should guide our future decisions?”

The key themes and topics that arose from the meeting discussions have been summarized in the image below.
