FVRD Solid Waste Management Plan


FVRD Solid Waste Management Plan

The provincial government mandated all Regional Districts to complete Solid Waste Management Plans (SWMP) by the end of 1995. These plans indicate the state of waste management in all regional districts and provide guidance on reducing the amount of waste going to landfill. The initial goal was to reduce waste by at least 50% by the year 2000.

The District of Mission contributed to the design and content of the Fraser Valley Regional District’s (FVRD) original  Solid Waste Management Plan. In 2009, the Fraser Valley Regional District embarked on a review of the Plan, which so far has included two rounds of public consultation.
