Waste Management Workshop

Waste Management with Coastal Communities Workshop

On September 4, 2014 the Comox Valley Regional District (Comox Strathcona waste management), with assistance from the Association of Vancouver Island and Coastal Communities, hosted a workshop to discuss challenges in dealing with solid waste on Vancouver Island in a cost-effective manner. The Comox Strathcona waste management service board of directors supported this workshop in hopes of finding solutions and possibly developing an island wide solid waste management strategy.

The session, attended by 50+ representatives from nine regional districts, was facilitated by Jerry Berry, JB Consultants and resulted in attendees sharing experiences, best practices and developing a great understanding of solid waste matters faced by Vancouver Island and coastal regional districts.
