53.7. Every regional municipality must, within two years from 1 January 2001, establish a residual materials management plan. Where an application is made to the Minister before the sixth month preceding the expiry of that two-year period, the Minister may grant an extension of not more than one year for the establishment of the management plan.
Two or more regional municipalities may agree to establish a joint residual materials management plan. In such a case, the procedure for adopting a management plan prescribed by this subdivision shall continue to apply, with the necessary modifications, to each regional municipality concerned, except that the commission established under section 53.13 may be a joint commission.
A local municipality may, with the consent of the regional municipality of which it is a part, be excluded from the management plan of the regional municipality and may, with its consent, be included in the management plan of another regional municipality.
