Provincial Government Announces New Strategy To Manage And Reduce Waste

Environment Minister Dustin Duncan released a new Solid Waste Management Strategy for the province today. This strategy is a starting point to providing a practical and sustainable solid waste management system to achieve specific goals over the next 20 years.

Saskatchewan produces the second-highest amount of waste per capita in Canada – an amount equivalent to each resident of the province generating about 842 kilograms of waste.

The strategy was developed in an effort to change that statistic and move toward more responsible waste management.
