Cariboo Regional District residents will soon be able to provide feedback on garbage and recycling programs.
Mitch Minchau, manager of environmental services, provided the CRD board of directors with an update on the Solid Waste Management Plan at the latest board meeting.
Coming this fall, residents and businesses in the CRD will get to attend a series of open houses and meetings to where the CRD will provide information about – and get public feedback on — future options for improving access to recycling, composting of yard and kitchen waste, wood waste recycling and more.
The CRD says public input is key to introducing new programs to help reduce and manage our garbage, protect our environment and make the best use of tax dollars.
The options for improvements to the region’s solid waste programs have been developed using the technical information from the consultants and with the guidance of a 24-member public advisory committee with representatives from across the region.
