Litter and illegal Waste Management Strategy
What’s the problem?
The number of requests to respond to litter and illegal waste issues has steadily been increasing in the Township of Langley (Township). Litter and
illegal waste is a concern, as it pollutes the streets, parks, waterways, and the local environment. With population projections indicating continued growth
throughout the Township, it is expected that the number of requests will continue to increase; unless new steps are taken to reduce litter and illegal waste.
What’s the solution?
To effectively deal with litter and illegal waste, a comprehensive Township-wide strategy has been created to focus on a proactive approach. It is based on three fundamental pillars – education, infrastructure, and enforcement. This strategy was created with input from the public, including various stakeholder groups. Input was gathered from focus groups and also a public survey, completed in 2014.
