Why did you proclaim Waste Reduction Week? What are you doing to help reduce and divert waste?: 
2013 to Present - Nipissing First Nation has been developing and implementing a Waste Management Strategy, in order to increase participation and educate residents about waste management rules and regulations. In 2012, a set out rate was completed with 150 homes from 7 different areas in the community. These homes had a 73% participation rate in the program. Our goal is to increase this participation rate to 85% by 2017. The current diversion rate is 17% and we aim to increase that rate by 2% per year to 23% by 2017. Furthermore, a waste audit will be completed once a year to assess how the municipality is doing and inform residents of the program’s progress.
