Solid Waste Management

On September 4, 2014 the Comox Valley Regional District, with assistance from the Association of Vancouver Island and Coastal Communities, hosted a workshop to discuss challenges in dealing with solid waste on Vancouver Island in a cost-effective manner.

The Consultants Report and Powerpoint presentations from the workshop are available on the Comox Valley Regional District’s website.

October 30, 2014, AVICC Executive welcomed Comox Valley Regional District Chair Edwin Grieve, Vice-Chair Jon Ambler and CAO Debra Oakman to its regular meeting to discuss the findings of the workshop.  Executive endorsed a motion for AVICC staff to request the assistance of staff from Comox Valley Regional District to identify a steering committee and develop a process or plan to facilitate AVICC regional districts and the Province to work together to develop a collaborative long-term solution for solid waste on Vancouver Island.
