Commercial Food Waste Disposal Changes

Commercial food waste generated in Salmon Arm, Sicamous, and Electoral Areas C and D is now
marketable, and can be composted at a private facility. The CSRD’s commercial food waste disposal fee
of $160/tonne is reduced to $80/tonne until July 1, 2018 in an effort to provide time for commercial food
waste generators to subscribe to the lower cost composting option that is now available. All businesses
and commercial institutions will be impacted, including:

• Hotels • Theatres, Arenas and Sports Facilities
• Grocery Stores • Shopping Malls
• Schools • Restaurants
• Community Associations • Resorts
>• Offices • Manufacturers
• Hospitals, Nursing Homes and Senior Care Centres • Municipal Buildings
