The Northern Environmental Action Team is working with the Peace River Regional District, on a new initiative to facilitate the local area disposal of construction and demolition waste.

It is hoped to create a working group of all the stakeholders involved in the local area construction/demolition process, and to find some way to effectively divert these materials.

Jeff Rahn, the Manager of Solid Waste Services for the Regional District, will be responsible for creating the project working group.

He’s looking for participation and input from all members of the community, who feel they have a vested interest.

To that end, he’s also taking calls at 250-785-3226.
