Coast Waste Management Association fosters environmental leadership and best practices by providing a forum for discussion, education, and networking.
WHO WE ARE
Coast Waste Management Association is a membership association serving the solid waste industry in coastal British Columbia.
We are made up of approximately 130 members, drawing from the private sector, local and regional governments and non-profit organizations on Vancouver Island, the Gulf Islands and the Sunshine Coast.
CWMA members are involved in such diverse activities as recycling, composting, deconstruction, extended product stewardship, waste disposal, environmental education and consulting, and managing solid waste facilities.
The activities of CWMA are governed by an eight-member, volunteer Board of Directors. Board members serve a two-year term and are representative of the three sectors included in CWMA membership. Day to day operations are managed by a contracted staff Executive Director.
WHAT WE DO
CWMA offers a forum to assist our diverse membership in meeting the challenges and opportunities of waste management in our region.
We do this by facilitating communication and offering networking and educational opportunities for members. We provide an annual conference, ongoing technical sessions and workshops, a quarterly newsletter and e-bulletin updates.
CWMA also supports its members regarding important issues facing the industry. We serve as a local industry liaison, a member representative and we help to raise public awareness about key waste-related issues.
