Our Environment

The use of clear bags for waste disposal commences July 1st in the Municipality of Tweed.  To find out why click here.

From 2008-2010 the Municipality of Tweed and its Citizens created 'A New Direction: Our Citizens' Vision for an Integrated Community Sustainability Plan(ICSP).  The ICSP was designed to represent a leap in the future, and identify visions, values, goals, and proposed actions from all parts of the community.  The document was based on the concept of sustainable development, defined as development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the future. The underlying structure of sustainable development and the ICSP is based on four pillars (Environment, Economic, Social, Cultural).
