Your understanding and patience is appreciated. For information on collection disruptions: please call Progressive Waste Solutions at 250-248-8109 or toll free at 1-866-999-8227.

Road Maintenance Responsibilities

Please note that the Regional District is not responsible for road maintenance (such as snow clearing). In the electoral areas this is a function of Emcon Services, a contractor to the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure. Roads and streets within municipalities are maintained by municipal crews.
