Nicola Valley residents can expect to see the newest edition of the “Recycle Now … and Save!” newsletter arriving in their mailboxes.

The Thompson-Nicola Regional District’s pamphlet tells locals what they should know about local landfills, Eco Depots and recycling drop-offs.

“TNRD residents have made great strides in recycling, increasing the amounts of waste recycled, reused and diverted from local landfills every year,” said Jamie Vieira, environmental health services Technologist for the TNRD. “As new programs and services are launched, it’s important to keep people informed so they can continue to reduce the waste that ends up in our landfills.”

The newsletter also contains information about the newest upgrades that are being made to landfills and Eco Depots in the region.

The landfills and Eco Depots account for one of the biggest services that the TNRD facilitates.

Information about new B.C. recycling initiatives are also contained in the newsletter, including a notice on how people can take part in a pilot project that tests new composters, and how to fight against illegal dumping.

The newsletter is distributed this week throughout the TNRD, with the exception of Kamloops.
