Solid Waste Management Plan
In 1989 all Regional Districts in the province of BC were mandated to develop and submit Solid Waste Management Plans by 1995.
In accordance with the requirements set out in the Waste Management Act (1989) and its later amendments, Regional District of Kitimat-Stikine completed Stages 1 and 2 of their Solid Waste Management Plan.
For a better understanding of the regulations and obligations required of the Regional District with respect to the Plan and Solid Waste Management Faclities, please see the overview.
In November 2013, the Regional District Board requested a summary of the Plan and a report on the background and status of the Solid Waste Management Plan.
BC Ministry of Environment has developed new "Landfill Criteria for Municipal Solid Waste", Draft Interim Second Edition. This information has been posted on the Ministry website.
