The Municipality of South Huron supports many initiatives to help address environmental concerns within our community through programs that target litter and graffiti, waste reduction/diversion, energy efficiency, integrated property management and clean air.
Working as a team with area residents, organizations, schools, businesses and industries is a key component to the success of sustainable environmental programs. Organizations such as Communities in Bloom are in place to encourage waste reduction, landfill site recycling initiatives, environment cleanup activities, hazardous waste collection and others.
Our environment is continually changing and as our Municipality grows so too will environmental priorities.
The Municipality of South Huron is committed to reducing our own energy consumption rates. Armed with a vision of creating sustainable communities, municipal leaders and managers are exploring new opportunities to improve the quality of life for their residents. We all have a role to play and every action, no matter how small, brings us closer to meeting larger goals.
South Huron is also joining other municipalities in becoming leaders in energy management and lowering green house gas emissions in our municipal buildings and within our community.
