NCLGA Executive Recommendation: No Recommendation | Endorsed as Amended by the NCLGA Membership
Original Resolution with amendment (in red):
Whereas few recycling opportunities are available in remote and smaller municipalities due to poor economies of scale for populations under 5,000, greater distances to recycling facilities and cost prohibitive infrastructure investment, resulting in inequities for recycling opportunities in different regions of the Province;
And whereas recycling organizations continue to lack the viability to offer Extended Producer Responsibility Programs for remote and smaller municipalities;
Therefore be it resolved that the NCLGA and the UBCM lobby the provincial government to provide financial aid to small municipalities for the increase of recycling options including plastics, glass and bottles at recycling and transfer stations regardless of the size and location of each municipality in the Province of BC.
