Welcome to the Official Website of the Eastern Region Solid Waste-Resource Management Committee.
Eastern Region Solid Waste Management was established in 1996 as a committee with a representative from each of the five municipal councils in Antigonish and Guysborough counties. The Eastern Region, along with six other solid waste-resource regions, was formed by the Province of Nova Scotia to help Nova Scotians reach waste diversion mandates required through provincial regulation.
To inspire waste diversion the Province of Nova Scotia legislated a waste disposal target of 300kg/capita/year. This target includes all waste disposed from residents, businesses and as a result of construction and demolition activities. The target requires an approximate decrease in the amount of waste disposed by 95 kg/person/year. We can achieve this goal with the continued support of all Nova Scotians at home, work and play.
“I am very excited to be working with the public and our partners to help all of us achieve our environmental goals and make our part of the province a more sustainable place.”
– Tanya Williams, Regional Coordinator/Educator
