WHEREAS, the West Parry Sound area is at a pivotal moment with the recent funding announcement for a new K-12 School;

AND WHEREAS, the Council of the Township of Carling are very supportive of this area initiative and the many economic, social and health benefits which will be the outcome of the existence of such a facility;

NOW THEREFORE, the Council of the Township of Carling urges the other West Parry Sound Municipalities to join them in this support and in requesting that the Near North Board of Education consider a process for collaboration regarding location, design and funding for an area pool/recreation complex to be built in conjunction with a new K-12 school.

iv)        Waste Diversion

Resolution 2015-

            Moved By

            Seconded By

WHEREAS municipal taxpayers bear more than 50% of the cost of waste disposal and recycling of packaging and printed paper in the waste stream, which products are increasingly complex, multi-material and expensive to recycle, reclaim or dispose of;

WHEREAS The Minister of Environment and Climate Change has committed to replacing the current waste diversion legislation, but has not yet introduced replacement legislation to the legislature;

WHEREAS producer responsibility provides that producers be responsible for 100% of the costs of certain designated wastes for full cost end-of-life management for such products and packaging;

WHEREAS municipalities should not have to bear the cost of managing the disposal of these materials;

            WHEREAS waste is a valuable resource;

WHEREAS producer responsibility would provide considerable savings to Carling Township residents and grow the local economy as producers innovate to reduce waste, develop more easily recyclable packaging and work with municipalities on better ways to collect and process it;

AND WHEREAS increased recycling and reclamation could add 13,000 good, high quality jobs in Ontario and contribute more than $1.5 billion every year to Ontario’s economy;

NOW THEREFORE be it resolved that the Township of Carling calls on the Ontario Government to introduce legislation to replace the Waste Diversion Act with a system based on full Producer Responsibility, ensuring that producers are responsible for 100% of end-of-life costs of designated waste, and that producers need to work with the municipal sector on those Producer Responsibility Programs that affect the municipal integrated waste management system so that municipalities are fairly compensated for services provided to manage designated waste that enters the municipal system.
