Waste Reduction Initiatives Fund

The Regional District of North Okanagan (RDNO) created the Waste Reduction Initiatives Fund (WRIF) to help reach one of the primary objectives in the RDNO Solid Waste Management Plan; to reduce the amount of refuse disposed per capita to 0.55 tonnes/capita/year or less.

Individuals, community groups and non-profit organizations, including school groups, are eligible to apply for WRIF funding.

Funding is available for the development and implementation of initiatives that contribute to waste reduction in the RDNO. Examples of projects that have received WRIF funding include: developing square meter garden plots, establishing composting systems at schools, and implementing event recycling.
