Metro Vancouver is consulting on a proposed review of Bylaw 181, which regulates private sector facilities that manage municipal solid waste and recyclable material. The volume and nature of municipal solid waste and recyclable material in the region has changed dramatically since the bylaw was last revised in 1996.
Bylaw updates would modernize the way we regulate private sector facilities, increase recycling and ensure equity.
key areas for Bylaw review
- Recyclable material definition
- Regulated facilities that fall under the bylaw
- Appeal Process
- Exclusions and exemptions from licensing requirements
- Licensing process and term
More details are available in the July 28, 2017 GVS&DD Board report, titled "Solid Waste and Recyclable Material Regulatory Bylaw No. 181 Review" (Agenda Item E 2.3, page 49).
