Support Fort St John News

You can expect to see more recycling bins coming soon to local waste transfer stations.

The bins are just one of the reccommendations of residents of the Peace River Regional district who attended open houses this year to discuss the district’s new waste management plan.

Fourteen of the open houses were held, netting over 300 attendants who expressed support for environmentally-minded waste management options including reuse facilities known as “share sheds” to be installed at district transfer stations.

Other reccommendations include upgrades to transfer station fencing and improved staffing levels.

Shannon Anderson with Peace River Regional District says that there is still time for residents to submit their comments on the waste management plan to the district.
