Nick Crockford, an Environmental Planner at Morrison Hershfield, was elected to the Board of Directors for the Ontario Association for Impact Assessment (OAIA).
British Columbia is expanding its Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) strategy to include more products as part of the Extended Producer Responsibility Five-Year Action Plan.
Morrison Hershfield’s solid waste planners are challenged every day with finding responsible and sustainable solutions to help their clients manage solid waste. They help growing communities achieve their waste targets by finding ways to minimize waste and maximize recycling and resource recovery. Then, when the workday is done, our solid waste engineers and planners find ways to reduce impacts to the environment in their own every-day lives.
Ageing infrastructure and changing climate are just a couple of the many hazards municipal governments face as they plan, design, build, operate and maintain infrastructure and services. As these hazards become more severe, so does the level of risk associated with these hazards. In addition, the daily operations of municipalities can create environmental hazards such as waste, discharges or emissions that could unknowingly harm their community or the surrounding environment.
