Three waste carts, grey, blue, green, for compostables, recyclables, and non-recyclables. Title says give waste a new life.

Waste and how we manage it is constantly changing.

The City is updating its 2014 solid waste management master plan, exploring new and innovative ways we can support our growing community's waste management needs.

Over the past year, we have looked at how new approaches in waste management and consumer trends will shape the future of waste management in Guelph, and how we can improve our current system for a more sustainable future. We also heard from the community on their priorities for waste management in Guelph, the strategies that would help to reduce waste, and perspectives on the issue of single-use plastics.

Guelph is proud to be a leader in waste management. We need to continue to work together to build on Guelph’s leadership in reducing waste to create a plan that meets our needs today and tomorrow.

We have developed new programming opportunities and options for waste management in Guelph. We invite businesses to read about them in our interactive multimedia webpage then take the survey below to let us know what you think!

  • CLOSED: This survey has concluded.

    The City of Guelph is updating the Solid Waste Management Master Plan to provide strategic direction for managing the city’s waste over the next 25 years. For this update, we have examined how new approaches in waste management and consumer trends will shape the future of waste management in Guelph, and how to improve our current waste management system for a more sustainable future. 

    Through our review of the current system, analysis of future waste trends and growth anticipated in Guelph, and consultation with the public and waste management experts, we have developed a list of opportunities and programming options to help Guelph manage its waste more sustainably into the future. These options will help to guide waste management over the next 25 years. 

    What we heard in our previous survey and engagement helped us to develop and evaluate the options we are proposing for the Master Plan. The purpose of this survey is to gather feedback on priorities to consider for how we implement the options. 

    This survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete.  Please share it with your friends and family! 

    Be sure to visit our Give Waste a New Life multimedia webpage to learn more about the Solid Waste Management Master Plan, and the options we are considering for the plan!
