  • Inspired by member interest, Coast Waste Management Association undertook an Organics Management Survey of BC Local Governments. In search of baseline industry information to share with one another, the survey was sent to multiple contacts at each Regional District and selected municipalities across the province. Regional Districts were encouraged to send to cities, regions, and other municipal groups within their district. 

  • We received 39 responses in total. After duplicates or partially filled details, we excluded 10 surveys. The dataset then relies on feedback from 29 organizations.

  • The overall response was low given the extent of the outreach, however, as a first attempt to gather details in this way, we feel it is a good start. The overall goal was to build a useful snapshot in an effort to help each other learn and we feel that was achieved.

  • The survey was open from from March 6 to April 12, 2022.

  • While not statistically thorough, the information gathered was from a variety of respondents representing typical scenarios across the Province.

  • Information is presented in aggregate and adjusted for any duplication within regions.
