Great cities forge their own future.
When our forefathers established the Arkell Spring Grounds, they left a legacy. One hundred years later, these lands supply 60% of Guelph’s water.
Environmental stewardship – including reducing and repurposing as much waste as possible – is good business practice.
Guelph has surpassed its target to divert 65% of residential waste from landfill by 2016 – ahead of schedule and well on our way to 90% diversion. New waste systems continue to be reviewed and refined to reduce handling times and operating costs.
Great cities leave a legacy, not a liability.
