Special Committee on Solid Waste Management

Special Committee

Solid Waste Management

The AVICC Special Committee on Solid Waste Management was formed in response to the need identified by members to initiate a process to work toward finding a long-term sustainable strategy for solid waste management on Vancouver Island and the coastal communities.

Nine regional districts within the AVICC region were members of the Special Committee.  The Committee began its work May 1, 2015 with an initial one year term. The Chair of the Special Committee has reported back to the AVICC membership at the 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 conventions on the work being undertaken, and the membership has continued to endorse the work plan and priorities of the special committee at each convention.

At the 2022 AGM & Convention, AVICC members endorsed a policy on advocacy, further directing the Association on the type of advocacy work the association should do on behalf of members.  Members directed AVICC that they should no longer facilitate committee work as part of their Advocacy mandate.

In 2023, in line with the direction from members on advocacy, AVICC worked with the 9 participating regional districts to transition the Committee to a member-led committee called the Vancouver Island and Coastal Communities Committee on Solid Waste and Circular Economy.
