The CRD established a local service for solid waste disposal in 1973. The Environmental Resource Management (ERM) division is responsible for municipal solid waste management, including waste reduction, recycling programs and the operation of Hartland Landfill. ERM reports to the Environmental Services Committee who make recommendations to the CRD Board.
Environmental resource management in the Capital Region is based on the 5R hierarchy of Reduction, Reuse, Recycling, Resource Recovery and Residual Management with the goal of extending the life of Hartland Landfill by minimizing waste disposal and maximizing diversion opportunities.
