Regional Solid Waste Management Plan

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

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
Illegal dumping

Solid waste includes:

  • everything that residents, businesses and industries put in their recycling boxes and trash cans
  • everything they take to waste transfer stations
  • various kinds of waste that are dumped illegally around the PRRD, some of which is hazardous and is a risk to human health and the environment.

The Ministry of Environment (MOE) requires all regional districts in British Columbia to have a plan for how solid waste will be managed and reduced. The Peace River Regional District's Regional Solid Waste Management Plan (RSWMP) helps us manage waste in the safest and most cost-effective way possible.

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.
