Solid Waste Management Plan

The Columbia Shuswap Regional District is in the process of renewing its Solid Waste Management Plan (SWMP). The Environmental Management Act, administered by the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change, requires that all regional districts prepare and submit a solid waste management plan to the provincial government. A SWMP reflects a long-term vision for how each regional district manages its solid waste, including diversion and disposal.

The CSRD must submit a new SWMP to be approved the Minister of Environment and Climate Change Strategy by the end of 2028. Learn more!
