Curbside recycling bylaw gets three readings
The City of Cranbrook is close to establishing a curbside recycling service.
City council Sept. 14 unanimously passed the first three readings of Cranbrook Solid Waste and Recycling Collection and Disposal Bylaw No. 4011, 2020, which will establish regulations for the collection and disposal of solid waste and recycling for the City of Cranbrook.
At its July 13 meeting, council approved the city’s participation in the RecycleBC Curbside Collection Program.
As the guidelines for a curbside collection Recycling Program are not included in the city’s existing Solid Waste Collection and Disposal Bylaw” (Bylaw No. 3744), city staff prepared a new Solid Waste and Recycling Collection and Disposal Bylaw to include additional requirements for the Recycling Program.
The adoption of this proposed bylaw will ensure that collection and disposal of solid waste and recycling meets required legislation and the requirements of the RecycleBC Curbside Collection Program.
The proposed bylaw also includes the following additions for the Recycling Program:
- Eligibility of Dwelling Units for curbside recycling collection;
- Identification of acceptable and unacceptable materials for recycling collection;
- Requirements for recycling carts, including size and pickup location;
- Eligible exemptions for curbside recycling collection; and
- Fees for replacement of a Cart if it’s damaged or stolen, due to the neglect of the owner/occupant.
