The Government of the Northwest Territories launched a public engagement process in November 2017 to gather input on the future of waste management in the Northwest Territories (NWT). A Discussion Paper, Developing a Waste Resource Management Strategy, was shared broadly and feedback collected is being used to shape the development of a Waste Resource Management Strategy (Strategy). The Strategy will serve as a ten-year road map for improving waste resource management in the NWT. This document summarizes the feedback from the public engagement on the Strategy.
