2023-09-23 — The Thompson-Nicola Regional District has launched a public engagement period for a proposed expansion to Mandatory Recyclables Material Bylaw No. 2793, to include many recyclable products. This bylaw will prohibit the disposal of recyclable materials in all regional landfills. Once fully implemented, residential and commercial customers can expect that any load of municipal solid waste containing recyclable materials will be subject to a financial penalty in addition to regular tipping fees.
The TNRD will be hosting four public meetings via Microsoft Teams, two on Sept. 27, 2023 and two on Oct. 4, 2023.

A survey has also been launched to gather insights from residents. It will be open until Oct. 17, 2023 at 11:59 pm. The survey link is available here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/QMNTX6R
