Government to Evaluate Implementation of Waste Management Strategy
The Provincial Government announced yesterday that it is issuing two Requests for Proposals to evaluate the current implementation plan within the Provincial Waste Management Strategy. The results of the work will be used to ensure that the strategy is being implemented in a modern, efficient and cost-effective manner.
The first Request for Proposals is a call for professional services to provide an operational and financial analysis of the waste management systems in the province.
The second Request for Proposals is a call for professional services to assess potential solid waste management technologies that will support the goals and objectives of the Provincial Waste Management Strategy. In advance of making future investments in waste management, the Provincial Government is seeking to evaluate the feasibility of applying alternative waste management technologies within the province.
To date, approximately $180 million has been invested into numerous waste management infrastructure projects province-wide. The Provincial Waste Management Strategy was released in 2002 and broad implementation commenced in 2008. The Provincial Government has committed to provide 100 per cent of capital costs for eligible projects.
