Solid Waste Notification of Licence Applications

We ensure that all applicants for new solid waste licenses and amendments to licences adhere to the Procedure on Application requirements of the Greater Vancouver Sewerage and Draining District Municipal Solid Waste Recyclable Material Regulatory Bylaw, as determined by the Solid Waste Manager.

The Bylaw outlines:

  • requirements for posting, publishing and other forms of notification that may be required
  • the duties of the applicant and the Solid Waste Manager
  • the discretionary authority of the Solid Waste Manager

​List of Licence Applications in Progress

The following is a list of applications for new licences or licence amendments that are considered final and for which we are still accepting comments. For high-profile applications we are trialing and on-line process for providing information to and receiving comments from the public.
