On October 16, 2016, the Powell River Regional District and Let’s Talk Trash hosted a Zero Waste Fair and Speakers’ Forum event at the Evergreen Theatre. The event served as a public update for solid waste issues in the region. The Fair portion of the event was a platform to display the many innovative waste reduction initiatives that are happening in Powell River through local makers and shakers. If you missed the free event – do not worry – it was filmed! Check it out below.
The Regional District started a pilot composting drop-off program on October 1st. Bring your food scraps & yard waste down to the Town Centre Recycling Depot for free composting disposal.
