Proposed Hazelton Area Integrated Solid Waste Management Plan

Hazelton Area Integrated Solid Waste Management

The overarching principal of the Hazelton Area Integrated Solid Waste Plan is the avoidance of waste being landfilled through waste reduction practices, programs and services.  This approach acknowledges that each concept or aspect of the program is interlinked with the others with the long term goal to minimize waste generation, maximize reuse, recycling and material recovery, and dispose of all remaining waste responsibly.

NEW - The Kitwanga Transfer Station and the Hazelton Waste Management Facility are expected to open and be opertionational by mid-October.  This means new systems, more robust efforts to achieve waste diversion, new hours of operation and new operations contractor.  Please look for details here, your mailbox, and in local newspaper(s).
