Waste Management Strategy

Oxford County has made a few improvements on their official plan when it comes to waste management.

Oxford County council has amended their official plan when it comes to Waste Management.

The biggest change was to amend the official plan with respect to prohibiting, restricting, limiting or otherwise regulating new landfill sites in Oxford. Warden David Mayberry tells Heart FM they can't just outright ban landfills because that is a provincial jurisdiction.  

"But they did want to say if we are going to do wise planning for the use of land then we want to make sure we are doing things as efficiently and as appropriate as we can."

Mayberry says they found their plan was mostly up to date, however they did make a few improvements on things like working on a comprehensive waste reduction and waste management strategy.

"Working with business and industry on waste reduction and waste management strategy and we realize we want to do both, we want to have a plan and we want to reduce before the we have the amount of material we have to deal with in the first place."
