Public Consultation: Revising Our Path Forward

All Nova Scotians can help to make a cleaner, greener and more economically sustainable province for the future.

The Nova Scotia Government is committed to working towards provincial waste diversion goals. However, government cannot do this alone. We need the help of industry, communities and all Nova Scotians.

Nova Scotia Environment is proposing changes to the provincial solid waste regulations to keep the programs efficient and sustainable, to provide a high level of environmental protection and to create economic opportunities in our province.

What We Heard

Nova Scotia Environment conducted public consultations on proposed changes to the provincial solid waste regulations. The feedback we received will help guide the amendments due later this year.
