The Regional District of Central Kootenay has commenced a process to update the regional Resource Recovery Plan. The Plan update will be developed over the upcoming eighteen months, and will determine the direction for the delivery of waste and recycling services over the next ten year period.

The RDCK’s next step in the Plan process is to gather feedback from residents about solid waste services currently offered. This will assist the RDCK in determining priorities for new services and programming. A link to a short online survey has been posted on the RDCK website at www.rdck.ca/RRPlan. Participants are eligible to enter a draw to win a $100 gift certificate for a local business of their choosing. The survey will close on Friday, July 7th.

“The RDCK wishes to ensure that inclusive and meaningful public consultation takes place as we update our Resource Recovery Plan,” says RDCK Board Chair Karen Hamling. “We encourage all RDCK residents to take this opportunity to let us know their thoughts about these vital community services.”

A link to the community survey and information on the Resource Recovery Plan update process and public input opportunities can be found at www.rdck.ca/RRPlan. If a community member does not have access to the internet, they may obtain a hard copy of the survey at their local municipal office or can call RDCK Resource Recovery at 250-352-8161 or 1-800-268-7325.
