Solid Waste Management Plan

A Solid Waste Management Plan (SWMP) is a blueprint for how regional districts will reduce, reuse, recycle, compost and dispose of garbage for the next 10-20 years. In 2018 the qathet Regional District’s updated SWMP was approved by the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy. For further details click below.


2021 Annual Waste Composition Study
The qathet Regional District (qRD) undertook a two-season waste composition study to obtain information about the types of waste materials being disposed at the Augusta Transfer Station and their relative quantities. The information derived from these studies provides a baseline for staff to assess the effectiveness of current programs and to make recommendations to further increase diversion opportunities.
