Solid Waste Management Planning
Strategic planning is an essential task to ensure systems and programs are managed successfully, meet regulations, and that bylaws and policies are regularly reviewed for effectiveness.
Local governments in BC are required to regularly review their Solid Waste Management Plans (SWMP) in accordance with the Province’s Guide to Solid Waste Management Planning. Since the implementation of the 1996 Plan, the Regional District of North Okanagan has reviewed and updated it in 2002, 2011 and again in 2017/18.
The SWMP Update 2018 has been endorsed by the Board of Directors and approved by the Minister of Environment & Climate Change Strategy.
