Municipal staff and environmental consultants serving the municipal solid waste management sector are invited to attend a one day workshop to learn how to use the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) “Solid Waste as a Resource Guide” to learn policy and technical options for waste management, taking into account community goals and current performance. Participants will also have an opportunity to use the accompanying workbook which provides a framework for them to make decisions on the waste management system and options that will best meet their local circumstances.
The Ontario workshop will be held November 9, 2005 at the Mel Lloyd Centre in Shelburne, Ontario.
The workshop will be of most interest to:
a) communities that don’t have a significant diversion rate or have staff new to the waste management area with limited or no background in waste management;
b) solid waste managers in smaller communities who have fewer staff and experts in the waste management field on staff;
c) elected officials who want to develop a better understanding of staff recommendations on waste management solutions; and,
d) consultants involved in municipal solid waste management.
Additional information, registration form, map and local a list of hotels/motels are posted on the Municipal Waste Integration Network (MWIN) website at www.mwin.org (look under “what’s new).
The workshop is FREE but space is limited to 35 persons.
Municipal staff planning to attend the workshop should fax the completed registration form and Needs Assessment questionnaire to Maryanne Hill at MWIN 519-620-9678 as soon as possible.
