Following guidance from the province's Restart BC Plan and new health and safety regulations from WorkSafeBC, we are taking all necessary steps to protect public health and maintain the safety of our employees.
New garbage and organics carts coming during 2017
This year, we will be providing free carts with wheels and locking lids — one for garbage and one for organic waste — to every home in the District that receives residential garbage collection.
By moving to these standardized carts, we can:
- Improve worker health and safety — the new carts don't require manual lifting
- Make garbage less accessible to animals — the new carts have lids that lock
- Reduce the amount of waste we generate — there are financial incentives for choosing smaller carts
