Committee rep seeks input on garbage

“Time waits for no-one’’ Apparently the need to deal with trash is in the same arena

Editor, The Times:

“Time waits for no-one’’ Apparently the need to deal with trash is in the same arena.

As October is here, the time is fast approaching for the semi-annual meeting in Kamloops where I will take your local comments and concerns about trash to the Thompson-Nicola Regional District’s Solid Waste Management Plan public advisory committee.

This committee is comprised of ordinary citizens from around the regional district.

The minutes from this semi-annual meeting will be passed along to the regional directors on the solid waste committee, and are then introduced to the whole TNRD board for action.

I invite you to email your comments to or to leave a comment on my answering machine at 250-674-3260 so that I can, in turn, represent your views at the upcoming meeting.

Cheryl Thomas


Clearwater, B.C.
