Solid Waste Management Plan Public/Technical Advisory Committee

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

​​Metro Vancouver has convened individuals with relevant personal qualities and experience to sit on the Solid Waste Management Plan Public/Technical Advisory Committee. Thirty members, from a range of backgrounds, will provide advice and input on the development of an updated solid waste management plan.

The terms of reference outline that committee members will:

  • meet four to six times per year for the duration of the solid waste management plan update process
  • represent a diversity of sectors and interests, and bring a variety of personal qualities, perspectives, and experiences to solid waste and recycling issues
  • be selected by the GVS&DD Board, except for the committee chair and vice-chair who will be members of the Zero Waste Committee
  • be asked to adhere to a code of conduct for respectful and collaborative participation

 Terms of Reference

Representatives of the 10 local Indigenous Nations are invited to observe committee meetings at their preference. En​​gagement with Indigenous Nations is expected to be coordinated through a separate, collaborative process.

Recommendations for committee members were reviewed by the solid waste management plan’s Independent Consultation and Engagement Panel prior to consideration by the Zero Waste Committee and GVS&DD Board in a closed meeting.
