The Solid Waste Services function comprises 18 members within Metro Vancouver and provides regional solid waste planning, facilities for waste transfer, waste-to-energy and disposal, and regional coordination of public recycling services and education. The function is guided by the
Board Strategic Plan and the
Integrated Solid Waste and Resource Management Plan.
Metro Vancouver acknowledges that the region’s residents live, work, and learn on the shared territories of many Indigenous peoples, including 10 local First Nations: Katzie, Kwantlen, Kwikwetlem, Matsqui, Musqueam, Qayqayt, Semiahmoo, Squamish, Tsawwassen, and Tsleil-Waututh.
Metro Vancouver respects the diverse and distinct histories, languages, and cultures of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit, which collectively enrich our lives and the region.
