Solid Waste Management Plan Amendment

The CVRD is updating the Solid Waste Management Plan. The Plan contains important information on waste disposal and reduction, and provides a long-term vision for managing waste in our region. The Plan was last updated in 2006, and is due for amendment to ensure that it continues to reflect regional solid waste management goals and objectives.
