Recycling services continue at TNRD facilities despite strike

The TNRD recycling pickup service in Electoral Area “B” (Blue River and Avola) will continue

Thompson-Nicola Regional District

Despite the recent labour dispute at Emterra Environmental, the TNRD does not foresee any disruption in services at TNRD waste management facilities.The TNRD will continue to accept recyclables at all waste management facilities despite the strike which began on June 22.

In addition, the TNRD recycling pickup service in Electoral Area “B” (Blue River and Avola) and Electoral Area “J” (Savona, Cherry Creek and Tobiano) will continue.

Although the TNRD uses Emterra as a recycling processor, the regional district has sufficient storage and transportation capabilities at its waste management facilities to continue to take in recyclables. If the Emterra labour dispute continues for some length of time, the TNRD may have to reassess its current position.
