Eco-Depots get positive reviews

Detailed descriptions and instructions will be mailed out to all TNRD area residents and businesses

In the month since the North Thompson Eco-Depots were first opened to Thompson-Nicola Regional District residents and businesses, the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive.

The two new Eco-Depots in Clearwater and Louis Creek opened in January and offer improved levels of service for area residents and businesses to manage their waste and recycling. A common theme in comments that site attendants and TNRD staff are hearing, is how convenient and easy it is to use the various recycling and disposal options.

To coincide with the openings of the new Eco-Depots throughout the TNRD, area residents and businesses will be introduced to a new TNRD solid-waste management bylaw that was approved by the TNRD Board of Directors late last year. It will become increasingly important for TNRD residents and businesses to become knowledgeable of materials that must no longer be included in their garbage.

These materials are classified as Controlled Waste, Prohibited Waste and Banned Recyclables.

Detailed descriptions and instructions will be mailed out to all TNRD area residents and businesses and posted in regional newspapers in the coming weeks.

Additional information will be available through the TNRD website and social media services.

The TNRD Solid Waste Disposal and Recycling Facilities Bylaw No. 2389 brochure will go to all North Thompson homes and businesses. Additional copies of the brochure will be accessible in local newspapers, online at www.tnrd.ca or by calling 1.877.377.8673.
