Public meeting to talk about draft garbage plan

The future of garbage will be the subject of a meeting next week co-hosted by the TNRD and the City of Kamloops.

The meeting, on Wednesday, Jan. 17 at 6 p.m. in the Valley First Lounge in the Sandman Centre, will discuss the Regional Solid Waste Management Draft Plan.

TNRD and City staff will be on hand to provide information and to field any questions about the draft plan, which will provide guidance for the handling of garbage and recycling for the next 10 years.

Issues such as closure of the Barnhartvale landfill are expected to come up.

The amount of waste that is landfilled would be reduced by 20 per cent under the draft plan. For more information about the plan, or to provide feedback, go to
