Solid Waste Management Plan
Two rounds of public consultation were held (in 2009 and 2011) to hear your concerns and ideas about how we can reduce garbage in our region. These have been incorporated into the latest draft of the Plan, which has now been finalized and approved by the FVRD Regional Board. The next step is to forward it to the BC Ministry of Environment for its final endorsement, after which implementation can take place.
Plan BackgroundWhat is the Plan?
The Ministry of Environment requires all regional districts in the province to have a plan for how their region’s garbage will be managed and reduced.
Why are we updating the Plan?
A lot has changed since 1996, when the FVRD’s first Plan was adopted. There are more people living in our region, more garbage is being produced and new programs are being added to stop materials from ending up in landfills.
Because of these and other changes, regional districts need to update their Solid Waste Management Plans to make sure that the programs and actions continue to be effective in reducing the region’s garbage.
