The 2024 MARR strategic planning is now complete.

MARR’s Board of Directors spent June 19th in a strategic planning session. Thank you to all MARR members and associates who took the time to respond to the Strategic Planning Questionnaire. Your input helped shape the discussion towards a strategic direction that includes 4 general areas of focus:

1. Create new funding and staffing models to meet the emerging needs of MARR members
2. Support northern, remote, and Indigenous communities in the area of sustainable and responsible waste management practices
3. Increase programs and services to promote and support diversion, recycling and sustainable waste management practices throughout the province as part of the transition to the circular economy
4. Promote awareness of MARR amongst communities and organizations across the province involved in diversion, recycling and sustainable waste management practices
