Solid Waste Management Plan Review and Survey

The Columbia Shuswap Regional District (CSRD) is conducting a review of its Regional Solid Waste Management Plan (SWMP), last updated in 2009.  The review will identify new initiatives for reduce, reuse, recycle and disposal programs for the next five years, as many of the 2009 recommendations have now been completed.  A review of new opportunities and directions will be conducted to update the SWMP and to establish implementation priorities for the next five years.
