Survey seeks feedback, offers prizes

Thompson-Nicola Regional District is offering a survey to get feedback from residents about garbage and recycling services

Thompson-Nicola Regional District is offering a survey to get feedback from residents about their current garbage and recycling services, and what they’d like to see in the future.

The survey is part of the Regional Solid Waste Management Plan (RSWMP) review process that is currently underway.

The survey, which is open to all residents of the TNRD and its member municipalities, will close at the end of February and features the chance for anyone who fills it out to be entered into a draw to win one of two prizes – a $100 VISA card or a home composting kit.

A link to the online survey can be found at, and physical copies will be available at TNRD libraries, member municipalities’ offices, or at TNRD waste sites.

The survey closes Feb. 28 and the winners should be announced in mid-March.

Reviews of the TNRD’s Solid Waste Management Plan are done periodically with guidance from the provincial Ministry of Environment. The last review was completed in 2008. The work done over the next approximately 18 months will set the direction for the management of solid waste in the TNRD for at least 10 years to come.

The process will include extensive public consultations and the continued input from three separate committees. The entire process will be guided by a qualified consultant, TNRD staff, and the Ministry of Environment’s brand new “Guide to Solid Waste Management Planning.”
