On April 10, 2002, the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador announced a new waste management strategy. Minister of Environment Kevin Aylward outlined the goals of the strategy, including a 50 per cent waste diversion target, an 80 per cent reduction of the 240 landfills, and the phase-out of incinerators and unlined landfill sites. The strategy, which will be fully implemented by 2010, comes on the heels of a province-wide public consultation report. (See Regulation Roundup in the December/January 2002 edition.)
