Environment & Natural Heritage

Under Gary’s leadership Halton has increased our waste diversion rate from 40% to 60%. This has extended the life of Halton’s landfill to 2044 saving taxpayers almost 1 billion dollars and helping to preserve our environment for generations to come.

The Region’s official plan called Sustainable Halton was passed unanimously by every Member of Regional Council and by all 4 Halton local councils too. The consultation on Sustainable Halton took 3 years. That is the longest and most comprehensive consultation in the history of Halton Region.
