Regional district to provide input on plastic policy

The Regional District of Fraser-Fort George will be providing comment to the provincial Plastics Action Plan Policy Consultation.

The purpose of the Plastics Action Plan Policy Consultation is to consider feedback on new policy opportunities and amendments to the recycling regulation to address plastic waste resulting from single-use plastic items in waste management.

The regional district’s submission will shed light on concerns about challenges in waste diversion in small, rural communities and some of the fundamental problems in managing plastics, including different local, regional, provincial and federal jurisdiction rules as well as gaps in the proposed policy.
