City of Kamloops - Curbside Organic Waste Collection

City of Kamloops

Kamloops City Council decided in November to pursue a curbside organic waste collection program in a phased approach, pending approval of grants.  We here at BCSEA were happy to help out recently with a letter supporting one of the City’s funding applications. Good luck with that!  We know how many Kamloops residents are eager to have a curbside organics program.
