What’s the problem?
The number of requests to respond to litter and illegal waste issues has steadily been increasing in the Township of Langley (Township). Litter and
illegal waste is a concern, as it pollutes the streets, parks, waterways, and the local environment. With population projections indicating continued growth
throughout the Township, it is expected that the number of requests will continue to increase; unless new steps are taken to reduce litter and illegal waste.
What’s the solution?
To effectively deal with litter and illegal waste, a comprehensive Township-wide strategy has been created to focus on a proactive approach. It is based on three fundamental pillars – education, infrastructure, and enforcement. This strategy was created with input from the public, including various stakeholder groups. Input was gathered from focus groups and also a public survey, completed in 2014.
