B.C.’s Environmental Management Act requires regional districts to develop plans to manage municipal solid waste and recyclable materials. The CRD’s Solid Waste Management Plan was last fully updated in 1995, though amendments have been made. To guide the development of the new plan, the CRD is asking for public input into proposed strategies and actions.

Open houses are upcoming on Pender Island, Prospect Lake, and Salt Spring Island. Open houses have already taken place in Victoria, Sooke, Sidney, Colwood, and Esquimalt. Feedback is also being collected online at surveys.crd.bc.ca/Solid-Waste-Management-Plan.survey until Sunday, Dec. 1.
