For those of you who weren’t able to take part in The Way We Green public forum in City Hall on November 3 and 4, we’ve created some blog posts about the six sustainability issues that we discussed during those two days. Have a look at the policy ideas we raised in the White Paper and talked about at the forum and give us your feedback. Are they good ideas? Do you disagree with them? Will they work? Have we forgotten something? Please let us know.
The current situation:
Edmontonians continue to generate more waste per household than many other cities. Most of Edmonton’s non-residential waste is not recycled. Edmonton’s ecological footprint (developed land area/per capita) is 3.2 times the global average.
Possible policy objectives:
Give us your feedback on these possible policy objectives that could be recommended to City Council.
- Non-residential sectors achieve the same waste diversion rate achieved by Edmonton’s residential sector.
- Edmontonians generate low levels of residential waste; on par with their waste-efficient peer cities.
- Edmonton’s ecological footprint is reduced.
