The Squamish-Lillooet Regional District is amending its solid waste plan to account for greenhouse gas emissions.
The regional district board, says chair Jack Crompton, wants to understand the impact of its decisions for solid waste management on the environment.
“Inevitably, organizations manage what they measure, and we want to be an organization that measures greenhouse gases,” he said.
While local communities operate waste collection, the solid waste plan is regional in nature. “It is developed by a committee that has representatives from each community on it,” Crompton explained.
