The Capital Regional District (CRD) is seeking members from the community to serve on the Solid Waste Advisory Committee. This committee provides input on solid waste management matters, advises on the development of a major revision of our region’s Solid Waste Management Plan and will monitor implementation of the new plan, once it is approved.
The advisory committee will include representation from a wide range of stakeholder groups, including First Nations, private sector and municipal waste management service providers, non-profit organizations, businesses groups, the environmental community and the general public. Participation is voluntary and members will be asked to commit to meeting (minimum once a month) for up to three years.
Residents are invited to apply by submitting a brief summary about themselves and who they represent, any relevant experience and why they would like to serve on the committee.
The deadline for receipt of applications is December 29, 2017. For more information about the committee and how to apply, please visit https://www.crd.bc.ca/service/waste-recycling/solid-waste-management.
The CRD delivers regional, sub-regional and local services to 13 municipalities and three electoral areas on southern Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands. Governed by a 24-member Board of Directors, the CRD works collaboratively with First Nations and all levels of government to enable sustainable growth, foster community well-being, and develop cost-effective infrastructure while continuing to provide core services to residents throughout the region.
