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 are 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.

Recycle Right – At Home Campaign

The Association of Vancouver Island and Coastal Communities  with partnership from 8 regional districts developed the new Recycle Right at Home campaign, providing residents across all regional districts information for how to reduce, reuse and recycle responsibly and effectively at home.

Five short videos were developed that focussed on different aspects of recycling to inform and hopefully inspire residents to ‘Recycle Right’. The campaign presented easily adaptable ideas to work towards waste reduction. The videos were tailored to the different needs of each regional district.
