RDN News Release - Solid Waste Bylaws

The Regional District of Nanaimo (RDN) invites the public to provide feedback on two proposed solid waste bylaws - the Mandatory Waste Source Separation bylaw and the Waste Hauler Licensing bylaw. The goal of the bylaws is to increase the diversion of recyclable and organic material from waste generated by multi-family buildings and the institutional and commercial sectors. Once implemented, the two bylaws will support the growth of the local circular economy by providing more opportunities for local haulers and encouraging the development of local recycling markets. The bylaws will also help preserve the remaining 22-year lifespan of the Regional Landfill.
