As you may know, over the last year the PRRD has been working to update its Regional Solid Waste Management Plan (RSWMP). The Ministry of Environment requires all regional districts in British Columbia to have a plan for how solid waste in their region will be managed and reduced. Dealing with solid waste effectively is extremely challenging in northern British Columbia due to transportation costs, lack of markets for recycled items and waste products, and incidences of illegal dumping. The RSWMP helps us manage solid waste in the safest and most cost-effective way possible.
We are at the point in the process where we are going out for public consultation on the draft plan that has been developed. The survey can be found here, on our new engagement platform Have Your Say!.
With your help and input, we can create a strong solid waste management plan that addresses emerging local issues and sets out waste reduction goals for the next 15 years.
Don’t waste your chance to have your say!
