Building a Better Solid Waste System, Together: Phase 2 Summary

by Emily,

After visiting central locations across HRM for phase 1 of the waste management public engagement sessions, we returned to the same communities for phase 2. This included Dartmouth, Bedford, Halifax and Porters Lake. While phase 1 focused sharing information and collecting feedback on potential changes to the solid waste management system, during phase 2 we asked community members to indicate their position on each of the options under consideration.

While phase 1 focused sharing information and collecting feedback on potential changes to the solid waste management system, during phase 2 we asked community members to indicate their position on each of the options under consideration.

We once again hosted discussions in a world café format. Small groups gathered to dicuss the topics and potential changes they cared about the most. This included:

  • Increasing diversion
  • Changes at the curb
  • Recycling
  • Organics and composting
  • Landfill site changes

More information about each of the options discussed can be found under Public Event Materials

An overview of the key topics, concerns and priorities transcribed by each table host at the phase 2 events can be found here.
