Gibsons’ new “zero waste select committee” got down to work last week.
The committee, chaired by Coun. Silas White, has until July 15 to come back with a report on initiatives that could help the Town achieve its zero waste goals, and recommendations to “introduce an organics diversion program, including, but not limited to, changes to the garbage collection service frequency.”
The committee vice-chair is Coun. Jeremy Valeriote, and the other members are drawn from the community. White told Coast Reporter they include the owners of Gibsons Recycling, other business owners and managers, and residents.
