Information Session in Whitby - Another Success

Our incineration and Zero Waste information session Thursday April 2 at Ecole Secondaire Saint Charles Garnier in Whitby was a resounding success!

The presentations will be posted shortly on this site in PDF format.

We thank the residents of Whitby, Durham and the members of municipal councils and municipal staff who attended and showed their interest in this subject of vital importance to the region, the province and, ultimately, the planet.

As you know, Durham and York Regions are trying to solve our garbage challenges with plans to build a waste incinerator in Clarington. We invite you to our next information evening.


Thursday, April 2, 2009, 7:00pm - 9:30pm
Ecole Catholique Secondaire Saint Charles Garnier
4101 Baldwin Street South, Whitby, Ontario

    "Incineration and Health Concerns...where there's smoke, there's always fire!"
  • Claudia Marsales, Manager, Waste Management, Town of Markham
    "Zero Waste in Action: Markham Walks the Talk"
  • Shawn Williamson, Director, Durham Sustain Ability
    "Living Zero Waste"

The goal of this evening is to provide information and to encourage timely community involvement. This Information Session will also include a panel of speakers who will address the health, environmental and financial implications of incineration, as well as how we could move toward Zero Waste. Time will be set aside for questions and comments from the audience.

Zero Waste is getting attention from the Ontario Ministry of the Environment with its recent release of the public discussion paper Toward Zero Waste: A Review of the Waste Diversion Act (Comment deadline is April 1, 2009.)
