Who We Are

Map of NorPen Subregions
Northern Peninsula Regional Service Board (NorPen) is a non-profit board that has been assembled to assist with the implementation of the Provincial Waste Management Strategy (PWMS). The PWMS was developed and produced by the provincial government to improve waste management practices in our province.

NorPen has a deep commitment to making a difference for the environment, communities and individuals, present and future. To us, waste management means embracing the tremendous responsibility we have as leaders in our province, to use our strength, knowledge, resources and technology to better ensure future healthy communities.

NorPen serves municipal, commercial, industrial and residential customers throughout the Northern Peninsula. NorPen serves approximately 14,500 residential and commercial customers through its network of collection operations, well managed landfill disposal sites and other related services.

Our Mission Statement
"Conservation and protection through solid waste management, ensuring a healthy environment for the present and the future..."

Our History - Formerly known as the Northern Peninsula Waste Management Committee
NorPen (Northern Peninsula Regional Service Board) is a product of a regional group of dedicated volunteers.  In January of 2002, the Nordic Region Solid Waste Management Study recommended the formulation of a committee to implement the Provincial Waste Management Strategy (PWMS) on the Great Northern Peninsula.

The Northern Peninsula Waste Management Committee had eleven volunteer members as well as a coordinator - and became an incorporated body in November 2003. The committee represented the region from Goose Cove East to Castor River South.

Waste Management Trust Fund (MMSB)

The Newfoundland and Labrador Waste Management Trust Fund plays an integral role in supporting waste management projects that guide the province toward modern waste management, and support the overall implementation of the Provincial Waste Management Strategy.

This is the tenth year that NorPen has received funding from Multi Materials Stewardship Board (MMSB) to support the General Manager's position which covers salary, office operations and travel. Also, funds cover regional workshops, educational and promotional activities. Five municipalities in our region received 100% funding from MMSB for the closure of their old sites.

The Board is very pleased with the funding received from Municipal Affairs and MMSB. This financial assistance plays a big part in NorPen's achievements. Thank you!
