Fraser Valley – Do you own or live in an apartment or strata complex in Chilliwack? Come learn about the new bylaw that applies to you.
The Fraser Valley Regional District has adopted a waste sorting bylaw that applies to all owners or occupiers of residential, commercial, industrial and institutional properties in Abbotsford, Chilliwack, Harrison Hot Springs, Hope, Kent, Mission and all FVRD Electoral Areas.
To comply, recyclable and compostable material must be sorted out of the garbage. This means you will need different bins for recycling, compost, and garbage. These three types of material must be sorted and kept separate, and delivered to authorized facilities either by you or by a private waste hauler.
If you are unable to attend the information session, you can also find many resources at www.BeWasteWise.com or call the recycling hotline at 1-800-667-4321.
