Care for the local environment, respond to climate change and prepare Guelph for a net-zero-carbon future.
Staff and the public had much to celebrate on April 23, 2022, at the City’s Wastewater Open House. The Earth Week event witnessed the launch of the new wastewater public education program—What Goes Down Comes Around—and introduced the public to the facility’s new name, the Water Resource Recovery Centre.
Environmental sustainability is a priority for the City and the community. Every year the City publishes an environmental sustainability report to highlight progress and the action needed to move closer to reaching sustainability goals, fighting climate change, and meeting our Race To Zero targets.
In 2020, the City initiated an update to the Wastewater Treatment and Biosolids Management Master Plan to make sure everything that is flushed down your sinks, drains and toilets is managed sustainably.
