For many years now, Regional District Central Kootenay (RDCK) residents and businesses have called on local governments to coordinate a regional composting system that is able to process the large volume of organic waste, ranging from industrial to residential sources, that backyard composting is unable to handle. Now, the RDCK is updating their Resource Recovery Plan and is being directed to include significant action on organic waste diversion. Local municipalities are involved as well. With over 65 percent of the rest of the province already having implemented organic waste diversion, now is the time to show local government that a regional composting system is well supported. Now is the time to make sure we get the system right.
