Update November 27, 2009 Professional Municipal Administrators Edward Evans Executive Director
Government of Newfoundland & Labrador Waste Management Strategy – May 2007 Divert 50% of materials going to disposal by 2015; Reduce number of waste disposal site by 80% by 2020; Phase out use of unlined landfill site by 2020; Full province wide modern waste management by 2020. Central Newfoundland waste management system operational by 2011
Key Components of Waste Management Source separation Collection Local waste management facilities (LWMF) Material Recovery Facility (MRF) Compost facility Construction & Demolition Debris facility Household Hazardous Waste facility Second generation Landfill (lined landfill)
Study Area Boundary 50 – Towns, 38 – LSD’s, 19 – Unincorporated Areas
Source Separation – Two Bag (wet/dry) Advantages efficient single-pass collection (lower collection costs) the production of compost; the stabilization of Wet waste residue; the inability to hide unacceptable wastes (e.g. HHW, yard waste) in transparent bags. compost carts not required less education of the public required (sorting is simpler ) control of recovery rates occurs at the facility instead of in the home or curb, providing the flexibility to respond to market demands
Wet Bag (green transparent) Baby wipes, bandages, cotton swabs, diapers Grass clippings, leaves All food scraps, meats, tea bags Paper plates (dirty) Anything that could contaminate recycles in the Dry bag belongs in the Wet bag
Dry Bag (blue transparent) Aluminum cans, juice cans All types of cardboard and paper products Fabrics, clothes All types of plastics

Governance Model The Central Newfoundland Waste Management Authority will finance with capital funding from government sources or through public/private partnerships, manage, and operate the waste management system for the Greater Central Newfoundland region which includes the area from Terra Nova National Park in the east, Buchans in the west, north to and including Fogo Island. The Board of Directors of the Authority will make decisions pertaining to: - The construction and operation of regional solid waste disposal sites including a facility designated in the regulations as a regional facility; and, - The charging of user fees on Municipal Authorities, areas under development control or unincorporated areas benefited by a regional facility. Board members will operate in accordance with the expectations of the Regional Services Board Act.
The initial Board of Directors will have the added responsibility of guiding the construction of the waste management facilities, establishing costs for users, initiating stakeholder communication and involvement, developing the Board operating policies, approving the By-laws and essentially building the Authority. It is expected that the nature of the Board will evolve as the waste management system becomes more firmly established. The Board at the outset will play a larger management role, but over the first term a shift towards a predominantly policy making Board of Directors should be anticipated. During the start-up period, the Authority Board will have engaged professional staff to manage and operate the facilities. In order to most adequately represent all parties, and to maintain a manageable size board, the board would then be comprised of seventeen (17) directors, twelve (12) voting members, the Chairperson and four (4) non-voting members. Every town, community or local service district within the central region will have a representative on the Board of Directors, nominated directly or through a regional representation. The Minister of Municipal Affairs will appoint board members.
Voting Members – 13 One (1) member from each of the regional waste management zones 7 One (1) member from the large towns; Gander and Grand Falls-Windsor 2 One (1) member from town’s with no transfer stations 1 One (1) member from Norris Arm & Norris Arm North 1 One (1) member for the three (3) towns over 3000 population 1 The Lieutenant-Governor in Council shall appoint a chairperson. 1 (Chairperson will only vote to break a tie) Other officials such as Vice-Chair, Secretary, and Treasurer, will be appointed from the elected board but these officers will still represent their communities or regions. - All voting Board members would be selected from elected municipal councilors or an appointed representative of the Local Service District - Each transfer station region will have a committee made up of elected officials and the chair of that committee will serve on the Central Regional Service Board.
- Larger towns will appoint one from elected officials. - Three (3) towns over 3000 population will jointly appoint a board member but this member must alternate between the three towns. - Norris Arm and Norris Arm North will appoint one member which will alternate between the two communities. (For the Interim, one representative will sit with the board and the other with the Technical Committee. The person sitting with the board will carry the vote.) The Authority will recognize the Technical committee. The Chairperson of the Technical Committee will be asked to sit as a non-voting board member. Terms of Members With the exception of the chairperson, a member appointed to a board shall serve a term of 2 years with the right to be re-appointed for a further term of 2 years and shall be ineligible for a further re-appointment until at least 2 years after the expiration of his or her last term as a member of the board.
