What is this engagement about?

Waste, and how we manage it, can impact the quality of our land, air and water, as well as the health of wildlife, plants, ecosystems and people living in the NWT.

The Government of the Northwest Territories is developing a Waste Resource Management Strategy (Strategy) to serve as a 10-year road map for improving waste resource management throughout the NWT. 

How will we get there? 

Your feedback on the Discussion Paper will inform the development of a draft Strategy and implementation plan. The Strategy and its implementation plan are expected to be completed by spring 2019. You will have additional opportunities to have your say before the draft Strategy and implementation plan become final.
