The qathet Regional District is responsible for long term planning and management of solid waste for the entire regional district. “Working Towards Zero Waste” is the philosophy held by the qathet Regional District that informs it’s initiatives and programs.

SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT PLAN

A  Solid Waste Management Plan (SWMP) is a blueprint for how regional districts will reduce, reuse, recycle, compost and dispose of  garbage for the next 10-20 years. In 2018 the qRD’s updated SWMP was approved by the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy.
